During the breeding season, the Lazuli bunting migrates to eastern Washington. I don't find them very often , but when I do I take advantage of the opportunity. The breeding male is exceptionally beautiful right now. He has a Blue head, neck and back, orange breast, and a white belly. The wings are mostly gray with a white wing bar. The bill is conical and short which is adapted for eating seeds and insects. Size: (13–14 cm or 5–5.5 inches long).
Spotted along the N. Wenas Road in eastern Washington. Cascade foothills. Shrub-steppe. Around 2000 ft. a.s.l.
