Painted Buntings, Cardinals, Titmice, female or juvenile Indigo Bunting at feeders

Today was a busy day at the feeders. The temperature was in the mid 40’s and everyone was hungry.


I had the woodstove going and the sliding door open enough for the camera.

The little brown bird on the L is either a juvenile Indigo Bunting or a female. Look closely at the throat on the green bunting. Looks like it might be a juvenile male. It is starting to show some color.


This little guy is so pretty I just couldn’t stop taking pictures.




In this video they continually fly in and out. At the end there are 5 males buntings on the 2 feeders.

The cute little grey bird with the topknot and big eyes is a Titmouse.

I love the section with the Painted Bunting sitting in the Bottle Brush bush. You can really see how beautiful their colors are. It’s a dark overcast day and they don’t show off as brilliantly as they really are.
