Painted Buntings

Someone on our trip today was asking about the differences between male, female and young painted buntings. Here are some pictures. You can also check out my video, "Are Those Birds Related?"

 Female Painted Bunting
 Young male Painted Bunting. Compare and contrast with the mom. Notice the orange tummy - that is the adult male red feathers starting to come in.
And, this is the adult male Painted Bunting. I always say that this is how I would dress if my sister didn't stop me.
