Transcript only very limited experience with fresh plumaged fall waterthrushes. Lazuli Bunting - G. D. Luckner October 19, 1992 An adult female Lazuli Bunting was observed at feeder in Crosby. The bird was feeding on the ground with nine Indigo Buntings in various plumage stages and one adult male Dickcissel in basic plumage. The bird was seen in very good light from a distance of approximately 35 feet for about three minutes. A small basically brown passerine about the size of Indigo Bunting and smaller than Dickcissel. Buffy-brown above with blue wash on rump. Blue wash on anterior portion of lesser wing coverts. Tail dark brown above and below. Wings dark brown with two distinct whitish wingbars; faint blue tinge on outer primaries. Dark eye. Small, conical bill; upper mandible blackish-brown; lower mandible dull, light brown. Basically whitish and unmarked below with pale buffy throat and orange wash across breast. Legs and feet blackish brown. The bird did not vocalize. Presence of distinct wingbars and whitish underparts quickly eliminates both Painted and Varied Bunting, neither of which shows these features in any plumage. Identification is between Indigo and Lazuli Bunting and close proximity of female and immature Indigo allowed for a direct comparison. Indigo is a rich, cinnamon brown above and buffy below compared with buffy-brown above and whitish below shown by the present bird. Indigo shows less contrast between body and wing coloration, with wings being a slightly darker shade of cinnamon with faint buffy wingbars. Lazuli shows noticeable contrast between buffy-brown upperparts and dark brown wings with distinct whitish wingbars. All female and immature Indigos showed buffy-brown bellies and flanks and faint-to distinct brown streaking of buffy breasts. Present bird showed whitish belly and flanks and unstreaked, pale orange breast.
