Indigo Bunting
Passerina cyanea
Notes:

Rare visitor. One has stopped by twice. He was probably migrating through.

A few years ago, I took my nyger seed feeder down because it seemed to attract too many house finches. I might try it again though.

We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
