Another look at the Indigo and Painted Bunting
The Indigos and Painted Buntings are still coming to the feeders. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they were nesting in our woods. These are two different birds. Each has it's own color pattern. One has a ring of blue under its neck...the other a solid red from breast to his beak.
