THE FEED

Birds & Blooms - - Feeder Talk -

Like many other song­birds, indigo buntings mi­grate at night, us­ing the stars to guide them in their trav­els.

HEAR THAT?

The best way to find an indigo bunting is to keep an ear out. Dur­ing breed­ing sea­son, males belt out a cheer­ful song for hours at a time. Pay at­ten­tion to high tree­tops, tele­phones wires and road­side shrubs.

BERRY GOOD

Straw­ber­ries, black­ber­ries, ser­vice­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries and el­der­ber­ries are indigo bunting fa­vorites. Berry plants give more than they take, prov­ing low main­te­nance and pro­vid­ing fruit (for you and the birds!) year af­ter year.
