A Painted Bunting, how lucky to see one!
Ooooh, you are so lucky to get this photo of a Painted Bunting. I think it is one of the most beautiful small wild birds we have in North America. Occasionally I will see this species of bird in Oklahoma. I love that you were able to get a photo of one.
I'd never seen one before. We took the pic through the screen so it is kind of blurry. Thank you for giving me the name. He is so cute.
I've seen that bird before though not in person. I can't remember where, or who, shared it, but I knew it was called Painted something. He is very cute. Hopefully he'll visit you again Sherrie.
I, too, hope he visits me again Becky. I took the screen off that window so I can get a better pic next time.
It is a Painted Bunting and I sure wish we had them up here!!
I'd send you one Barb but he is a wildbird and has to be free to go where he wants.
I know, I know .... so I'll just have to settle for your wonderful pictures : )
@Barb Rosen I just have to settle for YOUR wonderful pictures, too, so we're even.
Oh, Sherrie, I am so jealous. Please see if he'd like to come over and take a look at the beach.
the bird is a painted bunting
I guess I am one of the few on earth that didn't know what he was & I thank all of you for the answer. I wanted to know so I could provide the right food/water to help him.
