Description

Indigo Bunting (Passerina cyanea)

5 July 2015: We tried to get a better digital image of Indigo Bunting (Passerina cyanea) during our first summer's opportunity to photograph it but couldn't come up with an image better than the one we present here which is serviceable but not the ideal pic. And that's okay. There will be better opportunities in the future. It's a beautiful bird and plentiful at LLELA in season. This summer season there were some great pics of Indigo Bunting that were taken on the Cottonwood Trail. And now LLELA is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., we just read as much on its official Web site. A new chapter opens in the history of this particular nature preserve.

LLELA is jointly administered by a consortium that includes the US Army Corps of Engineers, the City of Lewisville, Texas, the Lewisville Independent School District and the University of North Texas.
