To All,
I was at Henricus today, Sunday June 12th around 11 am. I saw two birds on 
the fence, very close to the entrance gate, right before the ponds. They 
were both bright blue with gray beaks. I thought that they were male Indigo 
Buntings. I noticed yesterday's email about Blue Grosbeaks at Henricus.
Today's birds did not have wing bars, instead they had black wings. They 
seemed to have a thinner bill than the picture of the Blue Grosbeak. (in 
Sibley's guide)
What do ya'll think?
Are both birds commonly seen this time of year at Henricus?
