The Amazing Indigo Bunting 1


There is blue. And then there is the amazing, incredible sky blue of the male Indigo Bunting. These lovely little birds are a common sight at many Maryland bird feeders. I never get tired of seeing them. They are so incredibly…Well, they are blue. This little guy was enjoying a snack at a Cecil County area feeder this spring. He’s in breeding color, which is shown by the darker blue head. I didn’t spot his mate, who would be much quieter in color – pretty much a tan little bird.

I really was excited to get some more “candid” shots of a bunting, as well. Seeing them in their habitat makes spotting these guys even more special!
