No Dirty Bird Here!

Today’s post features a few images from a spring birding photo trip I did in 2012 (I’m currently spending some “Covid Time” reviewing/editing some older images in my database).

The Painted Bunting (male shown in these images) is possibly the most colorful bird we have. Found in the southern U.S., these little birds are quite active and love to take a fresh dip in a waterhole:

When not busy bathing, the male shows it “coat of many colors” to us:
