prothonotary warbler, painted bunting
This morning I was sitting in my favorite chair reading my favorite author and out of the corner of my eye I caught the most glorious sight, a painted bunting. Oh my gosh! I feed a lot of birds and see goldfinches, cardinals, nuthatches, titmice, woodpeckers and an occasional prothonotary warbler. What a beautiful sight the bunting was. My mother always talked about them but I had NEVER seen one. Oh what joys the woods can bring.
