I saw our first Painted Bunting of the fall this afternoon!!
This bird is right on schedule. Last year I saw my first-of-fall Painted Bunting on October 11. This year it was October 12 (although I thought I heard buntings in my yard yesterday morning, but I didn’t get visual confirmation). Isn’t it amazing how these tiny birds who fly thousands of miles in a year end up in the exact same spot at almost the exact same time?
Welcome back, little birdies! I can’t wait to sit out in my new bird blind and photograph you!
We just moved to Mount Dora and I’m hoping to attract them. Had several each year in Jupiter, they’re my favorites!
Send some this way, please!!
