Reed Bunting [Emberiza schoeniclus]

Sparrow-sized but slim and with a long, deeply notched tail, the male has a black head, white collar and a drooping moustache. Females and winter males have a streaked head. In flight the tail looks black with broad, white edges.

  9. Hi Bob, Re: the iPad mini. If you can use a cell phone, I think the iPad would be no problem. The only thing I regret about getting the mini over the full size version, is when my hand goes numb (from the MS). I can put the iPad on my lap and use my other hand, but it's size means I can't see it as well. For that reason, I might go with the full size version if I were you.
