WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY – NORTH MIAMI, FL

This photo is of a Painted Bunting taken in my backyard bird feeder in North Miami, Florida. The camera gear used to photograph this Painted Bunting was a Nikon D90 attached to a Tamron 28-300mm lens.

Painted Buntings are medium-sized finches with stubby, thick, seed-eating bills. Painted Buntings forage on the ground in dense cover, among grasses, or at seed feeders. Sometimes they venture out into grass to forage on seeds. On migration they form loose flocks with other seed-eating birds. Breeding males often perch out in the open to sing their jumbled, sweet songs.

Males are stunningly colored with blue heads, red under parts, and green backs. Females and immature are a uniform, bright yellow-green overall, with a pale eyering. Though they are basically un-patterned, their overall color is greener and brighter than similar songbirds.
