Look what a huge breeding range there is for the Indigo Bunting. Are you seeing them?
If not, you may be overlooking them because if they are not in the correct light they may appear as a very dark or black small bird. The blue color is caused by the structure of their feathers refracting light not the pigment.
Indigo Buntings like to be in short grassy areas where there are tiny seeds being produced. If your lawn gets a little seedy looking after a rain, that is the perfect place. Be sure and check for them right before it is time to mow the lawn. He may be attracted to your niger seed where the goldfinches feed for he is a finch as well.
They are here and I’ll bet you see one soon.
