The male Painted Bunting is often described as the most beautiful bird in North America. Its colors, dark blue head, green back, red rump and underparts, make it extremely easy to identify, but it can still be difficult to spot since it often skulks in foliage even when it is singing. Painted Bunting are shy, secretive and often difficult to observe for the human eye, though can be fairly approachable where habituated to bird feeders.

Esther, did you take the picture? If so, where was this fabulous bird?
Every morning they'll come to my wild bird feeder by my window. They have a beautiful sound I call them starlings here in the United Kingdom.
They are beautiful.

I believe this is an indigo bunting. I saw one the other day here in Virginia. Is that possible? I had never seen one before. And now today here is one on Pinterest.
