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