Bird Studies Canada conserves wild birds through sound science, on-the-ground actions, innovative partnerships, public engagement, and science-based advocacy.
The Indigo Bunting is a regular neotropical migrant found in most of southern Canada, except in the prairies.
Their vibrant blue colour, like for most blue birds, isn't due to a pigment, but rather to a structural effect on light.
