Indigo Bunting

Indigo Bunting
Yesterday I went down to Angels on Horseback to check on the nestboxes that I had placed there earlier in the spring. 3 of them had housed Eastern Bluebirds and 1 still houses a Tree Swallow sitting on eggs. The Bluebirds have all fledged, so I cleaned out the boxes and moved one off of a high vehicle traffic area. I look forward to a second brood for each.
While there, I heard, then saw several Indigo Buntings claiming their territories at the edge of the pastures. I watched and waited until I could see a regular perch for one, then set up and waited. All the shooting in the Bird Studio paid off and I was able to capture lots of images of this handsome male. The beautiful blue against the fresh green of the pine tree was perfect.
