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

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.

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.
