Indigo Bunting

Indigo Buntings are migratory, ranging from southern Canada to northern Florida during the spring breeding season, and from southern Florida to northern South America during the winter.

Kristine Rivers offers this tip:

“This species travels in small flocks with buffy brown juveniles and females, foraging for seeds on the ground. Look for them in Lafitte’s Cove on the West End, or in Corps Woods Nature Sanctuary on the East End.”

They are one of our spring migrants.  See Kristine’s Top 5 blog, Colorful Migrants To See On The Island.
