Indigo Bunting
Passerina Cyannea

The Indigo Bunting male is a brilliant blue with black markings when he is in the sunlight. In the shadow he looks dark and non-descript. The female is dark brown to blend with the bushes and trees where they build their nests.

The Indigo Bunting is found East of the Mississippi River in North America to the Atlantic Ocean and from Southern Canada to the gulf coast of Mexico.

The Indigo bunting eats seeds, berries and insects. They are beautiful birds, but I have only ever seen this one at my feeder so far.
