Re: Indigo Buntings TRV

I was lucky (after an hour-long search) to watch a messy looking Indigo Bunting in a small, bare tree 15' from me this morning (just NE of the horse staging area at about 8:30AM, July 9).  Bright blue, but mixed with a lot of brown on the head and wings; a lot of splotchy white on the lower belly. It was silent.

     A total of six Yellow-crowned Night-Herons were along the McCoy Trail near the Tijuana Slough Visitor Center. Two looked like adults, the others sub-adults.  (None that I saw were in juvenile plumage.)  A lovely male Blue Grosbeak was singing atop a bush along the trail.
