Hi Jamie et al.

Wow, how cool; Nice find, Doug! As I catch up on my e-mail on this 
coolish (76°F), rainy afternoon here at Cristalino Jungle Lodge in 
Brazil, I can't imagine a better time to reminisce about that exciting 
bird nearly 10 years ago. I had first spotted it from my dad's yard in 
the neighbor's back yard on Mulkey and a couple days later relocated it 
on Grant where a bunch of others were able to see it over the next 
days. Now shaken back to reality by the Red-fan Parrots screeching 

Good Birding,

Note: I am out of the country from August 17 - November 1.

Great find today, Doug!

The 1996 bird was found by Rich Hoyer and seen by many who tried.  It
was seen a north of Fred Meyer, along Grant and Grant Circle, and I
believe Rich saw it west of Kings Blvd. along Mulkey, Hayes, and/or
23rd.  (Sorry, couldn't help reminiscing!)
