The Indigo Bunting

I love the loud sweet song of what I consider the prettiest "blue bird" around my property. I've always had an occasional visitor to a feeder, but this year there seems to be an abundance of these bright cheery birds. 

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology states that male buntings often sing from telephone lines or wooded edges for hours on end. Each flock of buntings have a song library that is uniquely different from a neighboring flock even as close as a few hundred yards away...
