Good afternoon all,
I went out to the far end of our property late this afternoon. I've been building a huge brush pile under the powerline, and I was pishing for the resident Song Sparrow and Winter Wren, when they were joined by an *Indigo Bunting*. Nice cinnamon color with very faint streaking on the breast, and enough blue on the sides of the tail to make the ID fairly straightforward.
Having already seen the Carolina Wrens at home, I went to three other places where House Wrens are reasonably predictable, hoping for another three wren day, but no luck. Had one back in middle December.
