Blue Grosbeak
by: Judy-Seattle

My first impression of your photo was that it was a Indigo Bunting. So I consulted my bird book to confirm that. Then I saw the Blue Grosbeak. The book described broad rusty wing bars on the Blue Grosbeak. Although your photo is a little fuzzy, I think I can detect some rust color on the wing near the shoulder. If so, then he is definitely a Blue Grosbeak.
