Last week, I looked out to see a coveted visitor to my feeders. This male Indigo Bunting was resplendent in his bright blue plumage. I tried to sneak open the door to get some shots of him, but he spooked easily and immediately flew away. The next day he came back, and I decided not to press my luck, so took some shots through the kitchen window of this lovely birdie. The first spring we were here on Chickadee, I would have four at a time at my feeders, but since that time, I've only seen them sporadically. That indigo color is so vivid and beautiful!
