Though I've been doubting myself since I got home today, I was positive when I saw the "indigo bunting" from the back that it was not an indigo bunting at all but a blue grosbeak!!! I have seen them before in Costa 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
