The MiniBooNE experiment at Fermilab reports results from a search for oscillations, using a data sample corresponding to protons on target. An excess of events is observed in the energy range , which, when constrained by the observed events, has a probability for consistency with the background-only hypothesis of 0.5%. On the other hand, fitting for oscillations, the best-fit point has a probability of 8.7%. The data are consistent with oscillations in the 0.1 to range and with the evidence for antineutrino oscillations from the Liquid Scintillator Neutrino Detector at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
