Sicolo, m.ob.), perhaps breeding; a single bird turned up at Paynes Prairie Preserve S.P. 1 Jul (L. Davis). Isolated breeding of the ex - otic Scaly-breasted Munia (the Eng- lish name recently changed from Nutmeg Mannikin) included 6 at International Paper Wetlands 12 Jul (J. Callaway, B. Callaway) and 29 at Pace, Santa Rosa 31 Jul (DSt). An - other exotic apparently expanding its foothold is Pin-tailed Whydah, with a pair at e. Pensacola, Escambia 6-7 Jul (B. Gilley, L. Tilley, L. Good - man) and one in w. Pensacola 7 Jul (G. Money). Pin-tailed Whydahs are obligate brood parasites that parasitize certain species of estrildid finches, including Tricolored Mu - nias. The increase of Scaly-breasted Munias breeding in the w. Panhandle may provide opportunities for the Pin-tailed Whydah to begin breeding here.

A lone Bronzed Cowbird was n. of its usual haunts at e. Clearwater 8-13 Mar (R. & D. Lane, m.ob.). Always rare in Florida, a Bull - ock's Oriole remained in Gainesville through 1 Mar (AKe. S. Goodman et al.). The major winter influx of Pine Siskins continued, with at least 6 well s. at Clearwater Lake Resto - ration Area, Lake Mar 15 (GaQ et al.), and large counts elsewhere: 240 at Cantonment, Escambia 15 Mar (B. & J. Callaway) and up to 101 at Alachua through 4 May (R. Rob - inson et al.). Rare in the state at any time, a Dark-eyed Junco was very late along Man - dalay Rd., Taylor 5 Jul (R. Kittinger). At the very s. edge of breeing range, a singing male Painted Bunting was at County Line Ditch Rd., Volusia 12 Jun (MBr), while 3 (2 ads. with fledgling) proved continued nesting at their disjunct breeding location at Apalachic - ola 23 Jun (JMu).
