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. Ira Sanders Golden
