The Indigo Bunting ranges from North America through to Central America/Caribbean; birds breeding in North America winter further south. The male in breeding plumage is wholly blue but returns to brown in winter, the wings and rump/vent being the last to turn; the female is shades of light to mid brown with light streaking. Photos shown on this page were taken by Alexandra Makhnina in Mexico when the birds were in winter plumage.
