No time to post. Bunting hunting in progress. An effing mural of buntings, both painted and indigo, are hopping around the Spinster Ornithology Compound as we speak.
A group of buntings is also known, for some reason, as a “sacrifice.”
Indigo bunting, female. Cottonmouth County, TX. April 2009
Indigo bunting, male, Cottonmouth County TX, April 2009
This painted bunting looks like he's balancing on his tail, but is in fact jumping to get at some grass seed. Cottonmouth County TX, April 2009.
