Weekly-Photo Challenge–Painted Bunting, male

Weekly Photo Challenge–Eye Spy

I wanted to make this a Wordless Wednesday post, but I just couldn’t keep quiet! A male Painted Bunting showed up today. I wonder if it’s the one that spent last winter at our feeder.Β

  1. I love these birds. I’ve only ever seen one when I lived in Texas and stepped outside from work for a minute. There it was in a bush right out the back door! I had to look him up when I got home that night as I wasn’t sure I was seeing right! That was many years ago.

    • I was so happy to see him! I saw a flash of red in a flock of Brown-headed Cowbirds in the yard this afternoon. At first, I thought there must be a Red-winged Blackbird mixed in the flock. Then this little cutie popped up on the feeder all by himself. Needless to say, I spent way too much time at the window and didn’t get outside for a walk on this lovely day. I did have lunch with a friend and got a little more shopping done beforehand, so I did get out some. No coat required! Thanks!
