Indigo Bunting

Posted on May 7, 2015

Here are some more shots of Twan’s backyard Indigo Bunting. That blazing and regal blue looks almost otherworldly when you are at home and suddenly notice it outside of your window.

It even decided to have a snack at his feeders…what a treat for him!

As you can see he also had an American Goldfinch friend, and this Gray Catbird hopped up for some suet. I am beyond jealous…have you had such a cooperative Indigo Bunting? Now all he needs is a Painted Bunting to complete his set. Our homes, feeders and yards are a “Wild America” all their own each spring!
