I heard Bunting in the morning, so went out for a search. Found two of them in the same tree. But one looks quite patchy, young or?

The Scarlet Tanager was quite at ease, and I was gingering closer to it, until a nosy Redwinged Black bird spooked it away.I wonder whether Cardinals get jealous of Tanagers, It would be fun to get them together.
I also heard a wood thrush.

Wow, your wishes came true in the form of an Indigo Bunting and Scarlet Tanager. May have to wait longer for a Tufted Titmouse to show up. You are getting nice varieties.

Nice colours! And yes, the patchy one is a first spring male.

Thanks Thomas. Heard one today, didn't get sighting. But I also heard the Cuckoo, didn't find it. I had a full arm of mosquito bites to prove I really tried. ;) ;)
