At Herricks Cove today, we spotted a bird which has proved really 
difficult to ID-- it's either a blue grosbeak or an indigo bunting, 
and it's in transitional plumage:

I have other pictures of it, all obscured by branches, trees, etc., 
which are a little clearer than the one I posted, but the one I put 
up is the only one that demonstrates the buffy wing bars.

Any thoughts?

Also, I got my first Wood Thrush photograph in my yard today:
