I love this colorful little bird. They have been frequent visitors to the feeders this winter. My bird book says their diet mainly consists of seeds but may include fruit and insects as well.

Occasional male, when it warms up. Have not seen a female at the feeders.

We feed the birds all year and in winter the painted buntings can be seen everyday at the feeders. I have read that they prefer white millet but I have not seen it for sale otherwise I would get some.

This bird is found on Bald Head Island, North Carolina, both male and female. They usually appear in the early spring, although are seen throughout the year.

We have 2 adult males and 1 baby male, 5 adult females and 1 baby at our feeder all day long. So beautiful and shy.

This painted bunting has been feeding in my back yard since January. He and his female companion visit my feeder more than 5 times a day. And this is Central Florida. Just beautiful!

Last summer we had one painted bunting on our feeders all summer. We were so excited because we had never seen one here before. Now the best part..now we have two that feed all day late into the evening. After many years of feeding and watching we are so happy to have them in our yard.

I love these pretty little birds! The all yellow/green females & rainbow colored males, bring me joy every winter. I really make sure my bird feeders are full when they're around.
