Buntings

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on April 29, 2009

There is a flock of Buntings that have temporarily made their home near my chicken coop. There are approx. 20 of them, with at least 3 brilliant blue (Indigo Buntings) and at least 2 Painted [rainbow] Buntings. And assorted others. They are so gorgeous! I’ll keep putting food out for them and hope they make a home nearby.

Above is a picture of the Rainbow/Painted Bunting. The ones in our yard have a much more vibrant red breast than is shown. The one below is the Indigo Bunting (male). The females seems to be golden, brown with a little blue on them. There are some green ones as well; I am not sure what they are. When they are done annoying our little chicks, they are resting in a nearby Cedar tree.
