Elden Spring: Lazuli X Indigo Bunting hybrid
Hybrid Lazuli X Indigo buntings seem to pop up fairly regularly near Elden Spring. This morning this hybrid male was singing vigorously. I particularly like the fact that the head plumage is mixed between lazuli and indigo colors - the difference was even more apparent in the field.

RE: Elden Spring: Lazuli X Indigo Bunting hybrid
A different hybrid Lazuli X Indigo Bunting appeared at my feeder today. I was not able to get photos, but this was clearly a different bird - much more Indigo-like with no hint of the rusty chest band and much more extensive blue streaking on the front and sides.
