Hmmm.... seen in same area as indigo bunting. Is this just an odd angle of an indigo, or perhaps something else like a blue grosbeak?? Unfortunately, I believe this is the only photo I have of this individual.

I found the nest before I found the bird, and at first I thought it was a hummingbird's. But then the gnatcatcher hopped on into it! First of two gnatchatcher nests we saw on this walk. What a treat!
