Sounds like Geprag's Park (that's where the BWW and GWW are).... ?
A couple of other folks reported this bird earlier in the week... We
missed it when we were birding there last weekend. Can anyone explain
specifically where in the park it was located? And has it been
confirmed as Blue Grosbeak at this point?
Also, where at Geprag's was the Orchard Oriole seen?

when I saw the "indigo bunting" from the back that it was not an indigo

Rica and especially in Florida at Lake Okachobee while in migration. In
fact I saw at least 5 pair of both together in the same bushes (indigo
buntings and blue grosbeaks) and?most were in some sort of changing
plumage. The main difference?between the two besides the size are the
what I call the red/orange tweedy wings.
>Okay I saw it in Hinesberg on CVU rd. This is a regular spot for
birders usually famous for its visits in early spring from golden-winged
and blue- winged warbler which I did it then flew over to the grassnot
see today. I saw the blue grosbeak near the windmill.?It was in a small?
tree where I saw the frontfront
Exactly where along this road did you see the bird?
