Painted Buntings are beautiful birds, aren't they? When I was little I remember looking through Peterson's Field Guide and thinking, I want to see one of those. Years later I did, at the Fort Fisher Aquarium on the coast of NC. A male, fighting with his image in one of the aquarium windows. Several other aquarium visitors got to see him to when they stopped to ask what we were gawking at, lol. The male is such an amazing array of colors.

Very nice captures! Is that feeder at your home?

Thank you...yes, the feeder is in our yard, and the Painted Buntings arrive here (north Texas) in April or May and leave in late summer. This year we have seen more than in previous years - 4 males at one time. The seeds in the feeders are from a bag labeled, "For Cardinals, Nuthatch, & Finch". I have never seen a P.B. eat suet, which most birds love.
