Indigo Bunting

The male Indigo Bunting, Passerina cyanea, strikes quite a figure with his brilliant color for which he is named.  They are solitary birds and the female resembles a sparrow.  I believe the bird above is the female, but am not certain, so if you can correct or confirm this, I would be grateful.
