Rhode Island Rigmarole » laz2

1st-year male Lazuli Bunting, Hammonasset S.P, 1/20/07 (JulianHough/www.naturescapeimages.net) The throat is buffish,not white as in Indigo Bunting and is concolorous with the head and breast. The bill is also not as obviously two-toned as in many Indigo Buntings, but it’s unknown if this is a consistent difference. The underparts are uniform and lack the blurry streaks shown by f-w Indigo Buntings. The subtle plumage tones of this individual could easily be altered by the light conditions, but when seen well, the upperbreast was strikingly honey colored and characteristic of this species.(Julian Hough)
