1. Painted Bunting

Birds & Blooms - - Stuff We Love -

HOT SPOT: Corkscrew Swamp Sanc­tu­ary, Florida With an un­be­liev­able rain­bow palette of feathers, male painted buntings look like some­thing from the imag­i­na­tion. But de­spite their bril­liance, they are hard to spot. Fe­males and young males are es­pe­cially tricky to see be­cause of their green­ish color. They like to skulk in over­grown fields and shrub thick­ets where they blend in. Painted buntings visit feed­ers, mak­ing that the eas­i­est place to check them off your list. This species breeds in south cen­tral states and along the south­east coast, and a few win­ter in Florida.
