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.


  1. Beautiful post Carol. I will be so excited to see my first painted! I have captured the Indigo and I know we have the painted's but I have never seen one.

    Great post and photo's

  2. Such beautiful birds, and how exciting for you if they are actually nesting nearby. We don't get these birds here in Alaska, so I really enjoyed looking at your photos. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Gorgeous birds! There are apparently lots of both Indigo and Painted Buntings frequenting feeders near my place, but none have thought to grace my feeder yet. :< (

    Enjoy their company!

  4. Those are so beautiful! I've never seen a painted bunting. Once when I was sitting on our patio, an indigo bunting came up to our feeder. I was so excited to get such a good look at one. The blue is so vivid!

  5. Dang. Nice photos! Indigos are dirt common here in Wisco. I'll find my lifer Painted eventually. It's been my #1 nemesis bird for only the last 12 years. lol :D


Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the time you take to make a comment......If you ask a question, I will try to answer it here.
