The bird of the month returns for summer! The beautiful Lazuli bunting is usually seen in weedy, open areas near bushes or trees, often near a pond or ditch bank.

It is quite small, only slightly larger than a goldfinch, but its call is a sharp, strident warble of two to three seconds that is not easily missed once it is recognized. The male often sings from the top of a medium bush or tree. Like the male goldfinch, he dresses up in lovely colors for spring and summer breeding season.
