Subject: Re: [cobirds] What's the deal on this rare Red-flanked Bluetail in nearby Wyoming?
Ben, et al,
Cody Porter's neighbors were nothing but welcoming and friendly during the
2 days I was in Laramie looking for the bird. I am unaware of any conflict
between the birders, quite a few of whom were local, and any of the
neighbors. One neighbor invited me into his yard and made me feel very
welcome. I believe the officer was there enforcing some parking permit
requirement as this neighborhood is just up the street from U of W and
apparently the parking can be tight. I didn't have any problems parking as
I was just north of Cody's yard/area on a part of the street where there
weren't any parking restrictions.
