I've never seen an Indigo Bunting sitting still...always flying low to the ground. Haven't seen one in awhile. They are so amazingly beautiful!I'll have to look in the bird book. I don't think I've seen a Blue Grosbeak.Beautiful photos!PatBack Porch Musings
Hi Sherry, I've never seen one on the wing so to speak, but according to my birdy book, he looks like a Blue Grosbeak. Very pretty..!xo
Hi Pat,I think Blue Grosbeak!The Buntings are smaller and I think I see a bit of wing patch!I had never seen one!Sherry
Hi Sheila,I think Blue Grosbeak too!I did some reasearch and the photos I saw online look similiar to mine. I read after breeding they travel in small flocks looking for insects and seeds. I am so excited!!New to me bird. It also said they like grasshoppers! I have lots of them. I do hope he comes back and brings his "flock" I can refill the feeders and I have lots of water for drinking and bathing!Thanks for looking him up for me. I just was not sure! Almost sure...Blue Grosbeak! Yes!Sherry, who loves to see new species in her backyard.
*****Dear Q~I always thought this is what a blue bird looked like. So when you posted the blue bird a while back that had an orange breast, I was so surprised. I did not know that.Years ago, I saw this bird on my way to the lake nearby. I thought I had seen a little blue faerie streak by. hehe.This bird is just stunning, and just happens to be wearing my WOW color. Weeeeee!I am so delighted by these photos~! Thank YOU!L~ Sprite
Dear Sprite,I was very excited to see Blue Grosbeak. Was not sure that it was in fact Blue Grosbeak until I downloaded the photos!I had never seen one. I love the blue. Hopefully he will return for closer photos. I was pretty far away when I took these.Fingers crossed I get some nice photos soon.I have room in the yard for Indigo Buntings too. I need lots of blue...I too would like a WOW color.This could be it!Sherry, who is ready for another party
I generally recognize robins. The photos you show here are so fine, I think I'll pull up a chair and learn more...Thanks!
Dear Tumblewords,I posted a photo of a baby robin on Walking in Beauty today just for you!I do enjoy knowing the names of the birds and the butterflies that come into the yard. I am learning my dragonflies too. It is like knowing the names of the trees and the flowers and the clouds....so much to learn.Sherry
