Indigo Bunting

We've had the usual visitors at our single birdfeeder: cardinals, blue jays, grackles, cedar waxwings, sparrows, robins. A while ago, we spotted a woodpecker; another one time visitor was a brown wood thrush. Today, a single indigo bunting joined the nibbling waxwings, sparrows and squirrels on the patio beneath the feeder, adding an elegant touch of soft blue to the black, white, brown and gray group. My bird book didn't give any info re migration patterns or preferred food, but I hope he returns and brings his family.
