They Don’t Come Often

Beautiful little Indigo Buntings. They do not come often to visit my yard but I sure enjoy them when they do. A few years ago I spotted 12 of them together in my backyard.  I apologize for the blurred photos, but if you could have seen the window and the small area I had to get these shots from I think you would understand. I wanted to share these little beauties with you. Their blue feathers are just amazing.

  1. The beauty of these gorgeous birds never ceases to amaze me! You are lucky they visit you, even though that is not too often. I have never seen this bird here. Have a wonderful week ahead, dear Mags!

    1. I agree with you…I was so excited I was giddy the first time I saw one. lol You also have a wonderful week sweet Tiny.

  2. Aren’t they beautiful? They show up here for just a few days in late spring or early summer, and I just love to see them. You got some great shots (much better than any I have ever gotten of them.)

    1. I love seeing them too. I am glad you get to see them sometimes at your place. I am glad you like the shots.

  3. They are soooooo BEAUTIFUL!!! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing, Maggie. I have never seen such a blue bird!! Hope you are well, my friend. ❤

  4. Wonderful capture Mags! I have caught glimpses of these in my area, but have never had one come to my yard. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Oh WOW! We’ve never seen those here. Great photos, Maggie — we are so grateful for you sharing these with us!

  6. OMG they are gorgeous Maggie!!! Mary-Ellen who lives 15-20 miles North of me said she had some lovely blue colored birds at the farm. I was clueless til I saw your photos! Now I can tell her what they were. buntings are beautiful….

  7. I wish you were here to enjoy these fresh-picked strawberries with me! They are so sweet and flavorful. I’ve been eating them with cereal in the mornings and I had a few after supper with a little vanilla yogurt. Wouldn’t we have fun chatting?
    Hope you have a restful night. xo

    1. I too wish I could be there to enjoy some of those fresh-picked strawberries with you. I bet they are really yummy in the vanilla yogurt. We would have a great time chatting. Hope you are having a great weekend.

  8. Oh how beautiful. Only once, about 10 years ago have I seen one of these beauties myself. Thx for sharing. Have a nice evening. xoxo

  9. Those Blue Bunting are absolutely beautiful. You are so lucky to have them visiting even though they are not coming often. They are not coming around here and I hope that someday they may come for a visit.

    Your photos are great despite the difficulty you had at taking their photos. Thanks for sharing these beauties with us and I hope they will return more often.
    Hugs, Julia

    1. I am glad you enjoyed the photos of these little beauties…I was happy to share them. I hope some day you will look out the window and see some at your beautiful place…they would love it there. Hugs

  10. Goodness-what beautiful birds! Thank you for sharing these delightful pictures, Sis ❤

    1. They really are beautiful aren’t they…such eye-popping blue feathers. It was a pleasure to share so you could see them Sis. ❤

    1. It could have been a bunting or maybe a bluebird. The bluebirds color is not as vivid as the buntings but they are pretty too. I am glad you have blue birds to enjoy no matter what kind they are. You may have blue birds there that I have never seen or heard of. ❤
