I posted my latest For the Birds column yesterday. The day after writing that column — in which I write about seeing my first indigo bunting at a feeder — this guy showed up. Yes, another indigo bunting, but this one a mature male in his awesome breeding plumage. If you recall, the first indigo bunting was a first-year male and sported blotchy plumage (not that I was complaining.) But this new guy really stood out at my feeding station.

  1. I just NOW had a gorgeous indigo bunting like this one at my feeder in Shutesbury in Western Mass. Wow! That along with a Rose breasted grosbeak- male and female- are new to my feeder in the 16 years or so that I’ve lived here. Gorgeous blue… I was transfixed and couldn’t move to get camera!
