Observation Time: N/A

Observation Location: Moose Hill Farm, Powerline Trail

Common Name: Indigo Bunting

Comments: Like all other blue birds, Indigo Buntings lack blue pigment. Their jewel-like color comes instead from microscopic structures in the feathers that refract and reflect blue light, much like the airborne particles that cause the sky to look blue.
