Bird Pic Of The Week

Indigo Bunting

(Passerina cyanea)

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

Notes: Powhatan continues to be one of my favorite local places to consistently see this beautiful blue finch-like bird in action. Its unmistakable double-noted call sounds a lot like “where where, fire fire, where where, here here, se it, see it.” The loud, clear notes ring from the short trees that line the parameter of the scrubby field areas. When two males began to chase one another around, they became more focused on defending their claimed section of habitat, than on my hiding in a nearby bush. These pursuits often end on a tall perch in the open ares of the field at the edge of their territory. Which is where I had positioned myself, with camera set and ready. Just after this bird ended its latest chase, it noticed me at the edge of the bushes and gave me a quick look, as if it was curious about my presence. Immediately it returned to its preferred singing perch and resumed its chorus.
