Indigo Bunting

Just north of the hot corner area. Spotted by Terry. Half of the group got on it before it flew. I saw it in flight. The overall blue plumage was seen well in flight. Distinctive. Smaller bird than a Blue Grosbeak. My FOS - it's actually right on time for me.

Additional species seen by Fred Lambert:
1
House Sparrow
