I was out of town all week so upon returning home I just had a chance to look at the photos on ebird of a Blue Grosbeak that was reported at Beechwood Farms here in Allegheny County yesterday, May 10.
The bird is a first year male Indigo Bunting. Buntings at this age show rusty brown on the wings and other parts of their body. There is a photo that shows the entire bird (most are in profile with the head turned away) and it's an Indigo Bunting.
