Painted Bunting

About the Painted Bunting

The male Painted Bunting is often described as the most beautiful bird in North America. Its beautiful colors, dark blue head, green back, red rump and underparts, make it easy to identify. The plumage of female and juvenile Painted Buntings is green and yellow-green, serving as camouflage in thickets, woodland edges and brushy areas.

Painted Buntings are shy and elusive, preferring dense thickets and woodland edges. They can be found in the southern United States during the breeding season, from North Carolina to Florida and west to Texas, migrating to Central America and southern Florida in the winter. Their diet primarily consists of seeds and insects, which they forage for on the ground.
