      All,

       

      Attached is a picture of the Lee County (Alva) Lazuli Bunting (1st year male) that has been previously reported on various lists.  This is a very cool Florida Ornithological Society Records Committee review list species so I’ll paste the location below from the FLRBA post for those that may not be aware of it (I added some details to the directions).

       

      This individual was seen very early (near 7:30 AM), and later morning (near 10:00 AM) in the company of a male Painted Bunting and numerous Indigo Buntings of both sexes and various stages of molt.  Some males were getting close to their breeding plumage. Along with the birds mentioned below on the RBA, Pine Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Ruby-throated Hummingbird (this individual was a female/immature type that I observed with binocs and from a bit of a distance while it perched, so I cannot say with any certainty that it was not something else (like a Black-chinned for example)), and a lone American Robin. 

       

      A couple miles away, a few of us went to a location that earlier that day hosted Limpkin, Snail Kite, Wood Duck, and Red-headed Woodpecker.  The Whites can give you directions to this location if you visit their home to see the buntings.  I believe it was by going north on Parkinson Rd , which is a shore distance west on SR 78 ( N. River Rd ) when coming from the White’s home.
