I don't know how I still remember this, but one day in class she just started talking about the "prettiest litttle bluuuuu bird" called an indigo bunting, and she hadn't seen one in a long time. As a second grader, I had never seen one, and don't remember my first encounter, but I'll never forget Mrs. Johnson.
This morning while walking along the Olentangy River in Worthington, several indigo buntings were calling from the edge of the woods. This species likes edges and shrubby areas. If you'd like to see them, head to the Worthington Olentangy Parklands or check around old fields and scrubby habitats near you.
Happy International Migratory Bird Day-
