Indigo Buntings, Passing Through

It was a windy Sunday at St. Marks when I spotted a small mixed flock near the spill dam. Among the cardinals and mockingbirds were a few indigo buntings. They are not common here and were probably taking a migration break. This male was working on getting some new, bright blue feathers and still had some of his camou look.

A female is in the middle, below, and a sparrow is on the right. They were skittish, so I stayed well back get these shots.
