painted painted bunting-
Since this bird I painted is called a painted bunting, the blog post title seems right. These birds live in our area from April through August and never cease to amaze us with their brilliant colors and pretty song. We have at least two pairs coming to the feeder this year and I take lots of pictures, but since I can’t even come close to the talent and skill of wildlife photographer, Ray Downs, I painted this one of his, with permission. If you love birds and other beauties of nature, you will want to visit his site.
