Indigo Bunting has returned to Bird and Butterfly Garden

Indigo Bunting has returned to Bird and Butterfly Garden
By – 3:42 pm
This morning Sara and I birded the Bird and Butterfly Garden and found the returning Indigo Bunting.  He was north of the garden (northwest of the blooming Silk Oak trees) out in an area we couldn’t get to due to dense vegetation.  He was perched up on a dead twig above the bushes.  I shot a few photos of him, which are in our ebird report, but he was really too far away for my camera to get a decent picture. The garden was quite birdy this morning.  The Silk Oak trees were brimming with warblers, Western Tanagers, Black-headed Grosbeaks, and Hooded Orioles.  We saw a few Swainson’s Thrushes and Warbling Vireos as well.  The main drip was a busy place too.ebird report:  eBird Checklist – 4 May 2022 – Tijuana River Valley Regional Park–Bird & Butterfly Garden – 35 species (+2 other taxa)eBird Checklist – 4 May 2022 – Tijuana …Marcie MasonClairemont
