Bird Pic Of The Week

Indigo Bunting

(Passerina cyanea)

Where: Powhatan, VA • Powhatan Wildlife Management Area (WMA)

Notes: This male Indigo Bunting was singing along the edge of a large scrubby area in the early hours at Powhatan Wildlife Management Area. Occasionally another male Bunting would wander into its territory and he would chase it off immediately. Then it would return to its favorite high perch to resume its watch over his claimed share of the field. I wonder how they determine what boundary is whose and where it actually is? Certainly all of that singing and warding off trespassers helps to invoke their invisible borders. Also in the bushy habitat was numerous other scrub loving birds including: Prairie Warblers, an Orchard Oriole, Yellow-breasted Chats, American Goldfinches and Common Yellowthroats. The morning chorus was varied and nearly constant that cool spring morning. But as the sun rose and the day heated, the lower the volume became of the mixed symphony. Soon it was time to look for some shade ourselves.
