OUT DOOR WEDNESDAY

The weather for the past few days has been absolutely beautiful so I headed outside... All the birds are getting back into town...As I ran a few errands I saw a few little finches busy building their nest... Yes Spring is on the way...

This is a male Painted Bunting...Is this just about the most beautiful bird that you have ever seen at a back yard feeder...an amazing combination of colors..A green back, deep blue head and orange chest and belly.Dark wings and tail... The female is bright green above, light green below...No other bird can compare with the Male's striking colors.. The female Painted Bunting is uniquely green and rarely confused with any other bird...
Today is Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer hosted by Susan. Make sure to visit her blog, say hello to Susan, and check out all the other participants.Thanks so much for stopping by...... As always it has been my Pleasure...
Keep Smiling...
XOXO

  3. I have never seen this bird...he's gorgeous! Today I watched a flock of parakeets fly overhead. Their chatter was so lively and cheerful! It's finally spring...

  4. It seem to be true in most birds, the male has the most color. This one is certainly pretty.
