Pretty Bird…

female Indigo Bunting

I had a little trouble identifying this bird. When I first saw it I thought it was a new sparrow and I looked and looked in my bird books to try and identify it.  Finally I asked the Madison Audubon Society for help and they determined it was actually a female Indigo Bunting.  How pretty is she?  Her coloring was so different from the one I had posted earlier in my blog, so thought it was worth showing another picture of this pretty lady.
