Indigo Bunting returns to Bird and Butterfly Garden

10:34 pm

Hi all,
One Wednesday, April 24, around 4:30 PM I heard some calls and song that I thought might be an Indigo Bunting, and Merlin identified them as such as well. It was around the shrubs near the drip at the Bird and Butterfly Garden in the Tijuana River Valley. I eventually saw the bird, but my camera battery was dead, so I got a crude photo with the 10x camera on my phone. I didn’t see the Plumbeous Vireo. Lots of warblers around, including my first Black-throated Gray and Hermit Warblers for the year, and at least one Vaux’s Swift.
