We just spotted this Indigo Bunting at our feeder.

My bird book says that their feathers aren’t blue, they’re black. Believe it or not.

We have several of them at our feeders, and I didn’t even write a book (very good book, BTW).

Well, Seaton, they’re dark but a little brownish too.
I’m wondering if any birders — Jim Eisenbraun there? — out there have anything to say?

Seaton,
My observations: not a Blue Jay, not an Eastern Bluebird, finch size, no other real blue birds in our area but an Indigo Bunting.

That’s definitely an indigo bunting; in my opinion one of the prettiest birds in North America. Nice set up you got there, Scot!

Our group who attended Pepperdine from Florida agrees that your presentation in Elkins auditorium on Blue Parakeet was the best class presentation we heard. Any chance you will be a regular in Malibu? Should we send Jerry Rushford a few 50′s toward that end?

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
