Roving Reporter | "Blue Birding" | 5 Photos by Sally Mitchell

"Continuing my 'blue birding', yesterday at Tule Creek, I came across a bird 'party' that included 4 Little Blue Herons, 2 adults and 2 juveniles in the transition phase from white to blue feathers. And also at Tule, an indigo bunting -- I hadn't seen Little Blues or indigo buntings in over a year." - Sally Mitchell

"The indigo bunting (Passerina cyanea) is a small seed-eating bird in the family Cardinalidae. It is migratory, ranging from southern Canada to northern Florida during the breeding season, and from southern Florida to northern South America during the winter. It often migrates by night, using the stars to navigate. Its habitat is farmland, brush areas, and open woodland. The indigo bunting is closely related to the lazuli bunting and interbreeds with the species where their ranges overlap." Learn more on Wikipedia >>
