Two birds-Painted Bunting/Roadrunner
Posted By: sumrall, 05-19-2009, 01:43 PM

Painted Buntings arrive in April and stay until August.
Roadrunner in area year-round. This one caught a Cowbird a few days back. He returns almost daily to check for birds under the feeders. Caught that bird in a flat out run before the cowbird could get airborne - he was FAST!

Damn Brit

Nice work there.
I didn't realise there were such colourful birds in the U.S.

The Painted Bunting has the sort of colours one would expect to see in Australia.

Thanks for posting.
