or 2 Indigo Buntings pass through in the spring, making brief visits to my
feeder. But for the past week or more a male has been singing his heart
out in my yard daily. What a treat!
Annually I have Indigo Buntings nesting in my yard near Fern Lake, lots of singing, chking & preening in the smoke bush this week; a Black-throated Blue Warbler alit in the lilac for a mutual look as I was sitting out there; Phoebes on their second hatch in the tractor shed nest; Tree Swallows busy feeding in box #3; Wrens & Robins have dispersed; Common Yellowthroats abounding in the blueberries; Chipping Sparrows all over the lawns & flowerbeds; Catbirds & Veerys seen & heard. OT: Best news of the summer - I just watched around twenty BATS coming into the attic this morning!! Shelagh Smith.
