The male in particular struck me as significantly yellower below than most of the Black-faced Buntings I'm used to seeing around Taipei. I was also...

    Any personal observations concerning attracting indigo buntings to backyards? What are they drawn to?

    Hello, folks! Growing up in New England, I must admit that I've seen a lot of birds in my lifetime. However, I can't say I've seen every bird common to our area. And one bird I've never seen, not even once, is the indigo bunting. And I'm still not sure why that is so. Compared to other...

    I never thought in a million years that the stick on window feeders would "work." Not only do they work, but I have several species using them and almost don't care about humans being on the other side! Great way for my kids to experience song birds up close!

    passerine ID (Thessaloniki, Greece)

    I saw this one at a wetland with lots of reeds yesterday. It looks like an emberiza species to me but I am not quite sure, because I've never seen it before. Maybe a female reed bunting? because I saw a male near there a few weeks ago.
