Today I was bemoaning the fact that I thought I had gotten just about all of the birds that hang out here around my house, when lo and behold, I looked out the window and caught a flash of brilliant blue! An indigo bunting - #2 on my wish list - graced my feeder with a visit!
Fortunately, my camera was handy, and I was able to snatch a few pictures before he flew away... I'm hoping he becomes a regular visitor though - so beautiful!
Spotted 6/26/12 on the feeder in the woods beside our house.

I'm lumping all of these together, but they may very well be three different species of gulls (another very difficult type to distinguish.) If you can tell me what any of these are in the comments, I'd appreciate it!
Oh boy, was I excited when Josh spotted this Painted Bunting at the Pinckney Island National Wildlife Preserve in South Carolina (6/16/12). It was all I could do to keep from jumping up and down and screaming, I was so excited... What an amazing bird!
