    Default Painted Bunting

    I created a backyard habitat for birds and other wildlife in my backyard. I set up food and water sources. The birds come and go from my feeding station. As would have it I have a backyard shed which I employ as a blind where. I set up my camera, lens on a heavy tripod, and photograph the birds as they come in to the feeding station. I have not been out there for quite some time so I decided today to visit my backyard to see what was coming. To my surprise, a Painted bunting came in to feed and drink as well a bath. We do not seem to get to many Painted Buntings in West Central Florida. This is the first time one has visited my backyard.

    Hi Robert,
    Beautiful shots of a beautiful bird. I've never seen one. I hoped to when I was visting my husbands family in Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee but I wasn't lucky. There is a photo section here on SurfBirds. You should open an album for your photos.

    Default one of my favorite birds

    How fortunate you are to have them in your yard. I see them out in the wooded area where I camp near Paige Texas. One of my favorite birds. Your photos are incredible.
