I saw a couple of indigo buntings at the feeder for the first time this week. Here are some shots of one sharing the feeder with a male goldfinch.

Thanks. While the buntings are supposed to be common here during the spring and summer I have never seen them at my feeder. At first I thought someone's pet had gotten out but then I saw several more. It was a nasty rainy day. Here's another bunting.

Also had a dove resting and dripping wet.

All decked out in their spring colors. Nicely captured.
