    First, let me say that I am getting really good at spotting birds far away in the distance and pegging what they are...today, miss lil ole eagle eye spotted the Pileated Woodpecker flying in the distance and saw him land on one of our dead pine trees.
    Smack Dab In the Center, on a dead limb in the distance on pic below:

    Some sort of Finch, not certain what? it is a yearling because it is still spotted/striped on the chest...it definately is a finch though, you can tell by its features...

    I have never seen a indigo bunting...i have seen a snow bunting and something called a northern junco which i believe is also in the bunting family!
