Birders Without Borders
29 July, 2013
Unknown, but Least Concern status
Range / Habitat:
Winters in southern Mexico, Central America, and Carribbean. Summers in temperate forest in eastern North America.
Medium-sized perching bird. Male all blue with black wing ends, black eye and silver, conical beak. Female and non-breeding males drab brown, darker above than below.
We saw these lovely birds at Fort Snelling without a camera. Years later found them again at the Minnesota Arboretum.
