Don't forget the beautiful blues, too -- indigo bunting, my fave:

I'm reading your posts over the last week or so (been on vacation with no access) and I have to say that I've found myself returning to this post several times to take another look.

Beautiful bird, and an amazing photo (although I agree with someone else that I'd love to see one live, in the sunlight)

Saw some cool starlings in Africa long ago. Agreed that they give starling a better name.

This is remarkable. Gives me a whole new way to think about starlings!

I would love to see this exceptionally colored bird live in sunlight!
