THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE ( INational Geographic Society BRILLIANT BUNTINGS SEEM DIPPED IN THE SKY'S OWN IIUES The indigo bunting, upper left, has the blues in his feathers only. Gaily this easterner sings and bustles about, while his mousy mate stays in the background. Sunset colors blend in the gorgeous "Joseph's coat " of the Southwest's beautiful bunting, upper right. Radiant silvery blue adorns the male of the West's lazuli bunting (right center pair), whose coloring recalls that of the familiar bluebird. Black-headed grosbeaks (lower pair) are westerners closely resembling, in all but plumage, the East's rose-breasted grosbeaks (Plate III).
