Post  Josh on 5/15/2011, 6:25 pm

This bird is a cool looking blue!
I think it looks like a Indigo Bunting to me, is that it?

I did a search on Indigo Bunting & it sure looks like it to me.

According to my Birds of Iowa guide, it is an indigo bunting. They sure are beautiful!

Definitely an Indigo Bunting!

I found this:

Indigo bunting


Scientific Name: Passerina cyanea
Present in Illinois: late April to mid-October
Illinois Status: Abundant migrant and summer resident; very rare winter resident in south and central parts of state.
Illinois Range: statewide
Illinois Habitat: roadsides and forest edges

Nice picture!!

That's exactly what he is. Send him my way please. I've never seen one in the yard.....yet. And, when you do, tell his friend the Scarlet Tanager to come with him.

Nice photo too, Josh! Do you do photography as well as SFG'ing?

What a gorgeous bird!! I've only seen them at a distance, and definitely never close enough to get a photo.

Josh,

What is that bird sitting IN in the 2nd photo? It looks like painted tires?

pattypan,
My mom just got a new camera for Mother's Day and she is letting use it too, I have a friend here giving me some photography tips on how to take pictures with it.

middlemamma,
It is a tire! My moms friend made it for her, they cut it to look like a flower, and painted it, and in the middle it has a screen fastened to it and it hangs with a rope.
