Indigo Bunting

These are quite handsome little American birds which make their home in the southern states. They are of dark indigo blue color, thus making a striking­object in a well stocked aviary. The indigo bird is about the size of a canary, and his food and care should be the same as recommended for the nonpariel.

He soon becomes contented with cage life and his merry warble makes him quite popular, though his notes are not loud or of great variety. They will usually live longer in an aviary with other birds than when kept in solitary confinement and they are readily taught many amusing tricks.
