Painted Bunting

Hello,

I am happy, I finally was able to have a Comcast Cable rep help me with my internet service.  I am sharing one of my favorite Florida birds, the Painted Bunting. My brother visited us during his to trip to see the Daytona 500, he spent 5 days with us. So I had to take him to my favorite birding spot at the Circle B Bar Reserve. I was happy we all were able to watch this pretty Painted Bunting on the ground eating seed.




The Painted Bunting is one of the most beautiful birds I have ever seen. The male has the pretty colors of blue, red and green. The female is a yellowish-green in color.


The Painted Bunting can be found in thicket, dense shrubbery and bushes. They are shy birds but can be found at feeders.


I have many more Florida photos to share so I will still be blogging about Florida. I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

My list of memes for today, I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the host below.

What a beauty! I've never seen one before.

The goldfinches have been visiting my feeder this week. I went to the seed place and loaded up on Niger seed.

I did not know we have these painted birds here in FL, have never seen one before. I always told TexWisGirl I loved seeing hers because we did not have them.

I always loved seeing the Painted Bunting when we lived in Texas. Beautiful photos!
Gorgeous!

I wish we had known about that place BEFORE we moved to north Florida. We will definitely have to make an effort to go down there some time.
What a fabulous little bird!
Gorgeous bird, how thrilling to see it.

What a beautiful little bird, Eileen! What a thrill to see it! So nice to have your brother to visit, too. Happy spring and happy week to you! xo Karen
It's certainly a colourful bird and very pretty. Hard to camouflage though I should imagine.

Such a pretty unusual bird.
Anu said…
Incredibly-colored bird! It is really beautiful.
Thank you for sharing these photos.

Hi Eileen,
glad to hear, your brother was with you for a few days and he was watching with you this fabulous bird with the colorful feather.
Best, Synnöve

Phil Slade said…
That is one spectacular bird Eileen. The colours are just amazing and you have some fine photos there. Enjoy the rest of your week.
Findlay Wilde said…
The name suits them perfectly
Yes! Me too. I love both the male & female. And when the male sings early the morning...what a wonderful sound.
Happy to know you made it home safely and that you got your Comcast straightened out -- that is a twice-yearly hassle for us. (But worth it in the long run, although you wouldn't think so if you heard me griping for a day or two when we first get to either of our homes.)

Wonderful that the painted bunting put in an appearance for your visiting brother -- and I'm sure he saw many more wonderful birds as well at that great spot!
Breathtaking said…
Hello Eileen!:) The Painted Bunting is a real show stopper, their rainbow of colours are beautiful to see, and it was fortunate that you got the chance to see it with your brother. Very envious of your sighting, as we have nothing to compare here in Portugal. Beautiful photos Eileen!:)
Oh my, what an amazing little bird Eileen. You have captured it so beautifully!
Have a wonderful Wednesday :)
Wandering Wren said…
Yay for the computer whiz Guy! Lovely little bird indeed would have been a delight to watch!
Have a great week, Eileen

AzStu said…
Excellent Photos Eileen,.Really caught the colors well. And a great backstory too!
Stewart M said…
We had one of these birds in a book an American friend sent to me for my kids - I could not believe it was so colourful (or colorful!)

I really want to see one in the feather.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
what a wonderfully colourful bird!
