Passerina amoena

Lazuli Bunting
copyright Robert Shantz
Length: 6 in. (14 cm)
Found in open brushy areas, riparian undergrowth and open woodlands, the Lazuli Bunting eats a combination of insects and seeds depending on the time of year. In the summer, breeding occurs at higher elevations, and the nest is a cup of woven grass placed at mid levels in dense shrubbery or trees. It occasionally hybridizes with the closely related Indigo Bunting. The four-digit banding code is LAZB.
