Just wanted to reiterate what Mark said and to thank Donna again for being
such a great host and making this bird available to us all.

We are the ones that should thank you for opening your property to the 
disheveled masses that live for birds like this.  It was a state-bird for me

and the experience with you, Bruce Finnan, Denny Abbott and Davis Finch made

for a very pleasant day.  We are all in your debt.
