It isn't easier as I am seeing a lot less BHO's over the last three
years most everywhere in the Midwest territory. I did get a hair
raise fly over at pre-dawn in Duluth a week or so ago. Time to spend
some time on the achive to get you some more recordings and find time
to visit your bird and you in person. Sorry time hasn't allowed yet.
