posted about last fall, the indigo bunting is a bird I remember seeing when I was growing up in Tennessee that I didn't expect to see out here at the western edge of its range. The two species seem to be coming in to our feeders in mixed flocks. After doing a little checking I have seen that these species sometimes hybridize out here where their ranges overlap. I have seen one individual (no pic, alas) that is likely a hybrid - he looks just like the indigo bunting, but has a white breast.
