Our Indigo Bunting Returns. Again!

I was doing dishes when I noticed a speedy streak zip through the branches outside the kitchen window. The next time I looked up, a male Indigo Bunting was at the feeder! I ran to the camera and hoped it would stay for a minute or two.

Though not a clear shot, since it was taken from inside and through the window screen, it is easy to see our Bunting has returned. This is at least the third year in a row. I will have to keep my eyes open.

Now if those Goldfinches would return...

Hey, dAwN.

They are here is small numbers. We catch most of them at my banding site in late Oct-Nov. Still hear a few through Winter but they stay hidden most of the time.
