Indigo Bunting

I stalked the Indigo Bunting for quite some time.   I am not sure if there is one or two.  We usually get one passing through every May, I wish one would stay we are in his/her breeding range.

Success!  Isn’t he a beauty? Well worth waiting for!

We have been sitting outside for a short time everyday soaking up some Vitamin D on the days with sunshine. I have been working on a few projects intermittently, mainly I just keep the household running and take care of Far Guy and Chance.  Far Guy is still recovering from acute bronchitis…it is a sloooow recovery.

  2. They are truly gorgeous. I had as many as eight passing thru our backyard a few weeks ago but they don't stay here either.... The grackles and starlings do though....;)

  3. That is such a beautiful bird. I'm glad you got a close-up of it. Take good care of Far Guy. My husband had the same thing and it just came back for the third time. The second time it didn't last but a few days. this time he feels as bad as he did the first time around. Whatever it is it is nasty. Have a great weekend.

  5. Thank you for the beautiful flag pictures on your new header. And always good to see Chance on the header.
    I had acute bronchitis last winter and the cough hung on for weeks - gradually getting getter. But it might take a
    while for Far Guy to lose that cough. In the meantime eat well and get plenty of rest. Cough drops helped me with soothing the cough as did the anti biotic. I have not had a recurrence of the bronchitis and so happy about that.

  9. So many different birds! The only thing that we get that is anything like that colour are the Stellar's Jays. As we get older, being sick sure hits us harder. All the best to Far Guy.

  11. Wonderful photos! I have seen several bloggers now talking about an indigo bunting sighting. I am green with envy! I love this little bird and have only seen one at my feeders once or twice in the last few years.

  13. Indigo Buntings are a treat. A couple weeks ago I saw one at Charleston Falls in the morning and three more at Brukner Nature Center in the afternoon. Four in one day is a record for me.

    Did you ever decide whether that was an Orchard Oriole that you saw? It has been quite a few years since I have seen one.

  16. Oh, no! Still recovering? Wishing Far Guy the best for getting over it. Bronchitis is no fun. Yeah, soak up all the vitamin D you can!

    What a vibrant color. Yes, well worth the wait. Hope he decides to make this a regular stopping point on the way through each May.

  23. It is a beautiful bird. We have orioles in the area this year. We plan to get a grape jelly thing going to see if we can borrow them from the two neighbor's feeders.
