Bird Watching

This Indigo Bunting visited our feeder last Monday, on and off all day. It's a good thing it was only one day because I get nothing done when he's around. Even the kids are mesmerized by his beauty. All schoolwork comes to a halt as we stare out the kitchen and bathroom windows watching him flit from feeder to feeder to the clothesline and then the spruce. 

Many other birds have been visiting lately, including the Rose breasted Grosbeak, Goldfinch, Red - winged Blackbird, Baltimore Oriole, Purple Finch and House Finch, various Sparrows and Swallows. The following pictures are from a while back, but wanted to share anyway.
