Observation Time: 7:30 a.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Farm, Old Farm Trail

Common Name: Indigo Bunting

Comments: Sometimes nicknamed “blue canaries,” these brilliantly colored yet common and widespread birds whistle their bouncy songs through the late spring and summer all over eastern North America. Look for Indigo Buntings in weedy fields and shrubby areas under power lines, singing from dawn to dusk atop the tallest perch in sight or foraging for seeds and insects in low vegetation.
