Painted Bunting Sighting

September 27, 2010 – 6:16 pm

cwhitfield has a Painted Bunting sighting.  As gaudily colored as these guys are, it is incredible to me that they can blend into the background at all.  However, I’ve watched them myself, and with just a little effort they can sink back into the trees and be completely camouflaged.  If they didn’t move, you’d scarcely be able to see them.  Unbelievably beautiful bird.
