Happy Easter! Look what popped out of a special egg: An Indigo Bunting! He is my Easter Present. The blue, blue bird is the first Visitor of the Spring Migration fly over. The birds have been sighted in High Island, Texas. This beautiful boy is early to this area and came down to feed here at one of my feeding stations. I have shared Wikipedia info below about this little blue bird and Easter.
Then: Surprise: An Easter Parade. Enjoy and spread the Peace of Easter.
