It wasn't very long ago that I went to Middle Pond and sat near a feeder for three hours waiting for a "blue" Indigo Bunting to appear. It was a no-show, but the homeowner's pictures from the day before were great.
It seems this little bird appeared earlier this year than last. I know I didn't see it as soon as it was spotted last year, but my pictures of that visit are dated October 17, along with the Blue Grosbeak, I should add. Maybe there will be a Blue Grosbeak at Blackhead today. I will look for one.
