Indigo Bunting

Indigo Bunting0617At first I thought this might be the extremely rare and elusive Northern Splotchy Bunting, a very exciting find for sure, but then I remembered I just made that name up! This is actually a juvenile Indigo Bunting who, by the sound of it, has just found his voice. He was too busy singing away to be the least bit concerned about me. By next year he will lose all those goofy looking feathers and turn completely blue, and be doing everything possible to avoid being photographed by me.
