Oh happy day! Just a few minutes ago, I spied (with my little eye) a soft green bird in the back yard…at a feeder, then on the ground…It was raining and as usual the pics were taken thru glass, but I could tell this little missy was two-tone green! I posted her to a bird ID page on Facebook and it was confirmed…a female Painted Bunting!! A lifer, oh yay! Hope springs that I'll see a male…if not here, I am planning a road trip w/ a friend next week, to a couple birding spots, including a painted bunting "cluster" area.
