Indigo bunting        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Indigo buntings are common summer breeders in much of eastern North America.   They are found in forests and woodlands, and seem to do well in many habitats.   This second-year male (indicated by the rusty tone on the primaries) was singing in early July in riparian forest a bit north of Manhattan, Kansas.
