Bright Blue Indigo Bunting
by Alexis Hayes
(Markham, Ontario, Canada)
If I had a bucket list for birds I'd love to see and photograph, two of those birds would be the Scarlet Tanager and the Indigo Bunting.
Last week while walking through Rouge Park Woodlands in Scarborough I finally saw and photographed my first Indigo Bunting.
Although common to the area it's only 5 1/2 inches long and usually stays well hidden in vines, shrubs and thickets.
It was his warble that made me aware of where he was.
Beautiful picture, thank you so much for sending this to us, our readers will love it!
