He Wore Blue Velvet

I cannot believe it! My first Indigo Bunting showed up at the feeder. Since I wasn't sure just what kind of bird he was I grabbed the binoculars instead of the camera and studied him carefully. The richness of his blue color blew me away. At first I thought he might be some type of bluebird (Western or Mountain) but the color and beak were wrong. When I checked the bird book I found out he was an Indigo Bunting. They are in the area, I've just never see one at my bird feeder. Since I did not get any photos of him I thought I would send you to a site that has some great Indigo Bunting images. Lovely, lovely color.
