Donald Quintana photographed this bright Blue Grosbeak (Passerina caerulea, formerly Guiraca caerulea) in San Luis Obispo, California. “Searching for Blue Grosbeaks and Lazuliu buntings brought me to education drive, also known as Pennington Creek Road,” he writes. “It wasn't long before we had the opportunity to photograph one of these bright blue birds sitting on a dried stick from an anise plant.”
