Hi,
I was wondering if things have changed with this. Today my JeffCO need
alerts have exploded with people going to chase this bird. I was not
planing on chasing it out of respect for the owners, as Mark says it's
their private home. Or is it OK to visit the park only? I would love to see
a White-wing but I don't want to if it's not welcome.
Thank you
Brian Johnson
