He said let me go for the day breaketh..Genesis 32: 26

The indigo Bunting is a migratory bird that usually arrives in our part of the country in late spring to early summer. The male is one of the few birds giving a full-voiced performance at midday..

Last year I was very disappointed they did not show up at all...Everything is even later this year and we still have snow on the ground.

This is a picture that I shot May 14, 2011, mid- morning on an overcast rainy day. Our Flowering Crab Apple Tree was in full bloom behind him.
