Indigo Bunting

This little bird is almost harder to capture than the Painted Buntings.


You can see his is in molt. Won’t be long and he’ll be in full color…and they are beautiful then.

He’s sitting in the Bottlebrush waiting for someone to go to the feeder. There is a green Painted Bunting with him.


This video isn’t very good but it was all I could get.  When he came back he stayed on the far side of the feeder.


  1. I've never seen an indigo bunting before - just the painted ones we get here. So molting or not, he's a real treat for me!

  2. You have such colorful birds. I'm looking forward to seeing a little more variety here in a few weeks.

  3. Are they more beautiful than this??? Wonderful captures of this beautiful bird.

  4. Have never seen the buntings but Mom's bottlebrush is in full bloom and beautiful.

  5. We do not get them here so it is good to see what is a new species to me. Diane

  6. I think what you have is terrific.

  7. I've only ever had the opportunity once to see an indigo bunting, and it too was on my bird feeder about 9 years ago. I'm sure it was migrating through. That shock of blue is unforgettable, isn't it?


Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the time you take to make a comment......If you ask a question, I will try to answer it here.
