Buntings - The indigo Bunting prefers scrubby thickest and field edges. They prefer to nest low to the ground. I often find these nests in multiflora rose bushes.
The male will sing high in the treetops in early spring to mark his territory.

The buntings are a group of Old World passerine birds forming the genus Emberiza, the only genus in the family Emberizidae. They are seed-eating birds with stubby, conical bills.
