Chance had to go out at daylight. We were serenaded by many birds…then I heard a tweet tweet tweet sound and a Indigo Bunting flew near the patio. It was almost as if he was announcing his arrival.
I went in and got my camera. Of course by that time he was gone.
Soon he landed near Far Guy’s garage.
He and one of his pals hung around all day. I did not see the females…they are brown…so they blend in with other birds. Typically they only stay a few days a week at the most…but I can always hope they will nest here. They are ground feeders and like the thistle seed on the ground and they visit the birdbath.
It rained, Chance and I had a nap. Far Guy worked in the woodshop. The Buntings were the highlight of our day.
