I know that all of these birds images might totally alienate the few people who look at these pictures, but check out these INDIGO BUNTINGS (Passerina cyanea) that just made an appearance in our yard. These birds are amazing---they migrate from the Eastern US all the way to Mexico and down through Central and South America at night---using the stars as their navigational aids! (I'm not really sure how scientists know this fact, but every source I checked claimed it was true). Regardless, their colors are simply amazing...although a little rufous would contrast nicely.
The bird on the upper right is a TUFTED TITMOUSE (Baeolophus bicolor).
