145 Painted Bunting

I was first introduced to the Bunting family by an Indigo Bunting in the vegetable garden. A iridescent blue, it made the bluebirds and jays look drab. But I never saw the Painted Bunting in North Carolina. A few years back, when we were traveling back and forth to Art Shows in Florida, we happened to be staying in Savannah when the Painted Buntings were migrating through. We left the Isle of Hope to go to Skidaway Nature Center.The Nature Center there was all set up and ready for both the people and the birds, with scopes set up inside to view the feeders behind the Nature Center Building. We got our first sight of the there. Afterward we went hiking through the woods and marshes. We saw a number of the painted buntings, but to be honest, if we hadn't seen them at the feeder, we would never have known what we were looking at in the wild. So here is my Painted Bunting in the pines and oaks of Coastal Georgia in early Spring.
