    Painted Bunting with dilute plumage? Key Largo, FL

    Hello! I am curious about this bird I saw on my feeders this morning. It looks to be a Painted Bunting, which we do get them in the fall & winter, but it has very dilute plumage and slight color variation. I've searched for examples online but have not found any to come close to the bird I...

    My Painted Buntings has left but I had one make a pit stop. I put my cage back over the feeder but they have not returned. It's said they are so shy and this helps.

    I never thought in a million years that the stick on window feeders would "work." Not only do they work, but I have several species using them and almost don't care about humans being on the other side! Great way for my kids to experience song birds up close!

    painted bunting, female

    I haven't been able to get out to the bird parks lately, so it's always good when the painted buntings come to you. This photo doesn't really do this pretty bird justice. If you look closely at this species, the females have many of the same colors of the males, but they are more subtle and...
