Just wanted to let you know I’ve had the immense privilege of seeing an Indigo Bunting at my black oil sunflower feeder (the only feeder I have) on Friday evening (May 23) as well on Sat morning. At one time he was feeding with the Rose- breasted Grosbeak! We live just north of the private college, just outside of Lakefield.    Anita Schoenleber, Lakefield

I had an Indigo Bunting this morning (May 20) at my feeder. It stayed for a good five minutes, and I was able to take a picture. It is a new species for the feeder.  Ralph Colley, Fifth Line, Selwyn Township
I had an Indigo Bunting at the feeder today (May 21). I don’t remember seeing this bird in my backyard before. Not the best of pictures – taken at a severe angle through a ‘not yet spring cleaned’ kitchen window!  Don Pettypiece, Peterborough
