This evening my husband, daughter and I saw an Indigo Bunting along Fallis Line in Millbrook. Never having seen one before, we didn’t know what it was at the time. It was so stunningly beautiful, we stopped the car and just watched until it flew away. Later this evening we looked it up in our Peterson’s Field Guide, as well as some online resources, including yours, and decided it could only be an Indigo Bunting. Nothing else was the right size and such a rich blue all over. It was almost iridescent in the evening sun.
