Brilliantly blue: Indigo bunting is a showstopper

A brilliantly colored male indigo bunting pauses on a branch in Randall. The Audubon Society reports Minnesota is a common breeding area for the striking birds. The females, who do most of the work caring for the young, are mainly brown. The birds do well in brushy rural areas rather than unbroken forest, according to Audubon's Guide to North American Birds.
