Painted Bunting at Point Pelee

After work, I stopped by Pelee Wings to visit their special feeder guest, a beautiful female Painted Bunting (aka - Green Goddess?). In the sunlight, the mix of green, yellow and light blue was really nice to behold, even though my view was from 30-40 feet away.  I only had a few minutes to see this beauty before it left... I then decided to try my luck at Kopagaron Woods [ERCA LINK]which has had a Worm eating Warbler for the last few days. I was unable to find this amazing warbler, but my consolation prize was these nice Trout Lily plants.

Good birding!

Here is a handsome male Painted Bunting that I saw in Florida during my lil' birding trip a while back.


  1. Wasn't that a treat?! I was on my way to PP yesterday and I saw people practically running across the street from the store so of course I had to stop. I'm glad I did!
    I didn't get any shots of it off the feeder though. Yours are gorgeous in the tree! She's a beauty!
    Thanks also for posting the female Purple Finch. Now I know that I had one on my feeder. Her features were brighter and more pronounced and stood out to me. That's a first for me at my feeder.

    Happy Birding, Dwayne. It's turning out to be a surprising year already! I can't wait to see what's going to turn up next. :)

  2. I still think you will be successful w/ Worm-eating Warbler! This seems to be the year to get one for sure.
