This afternoon was a beautiful afternoon and I was blessed to get a few amazing shots of some amazing birds.
An adult male Painted Bunting decided to make his appearance for just a few minutes. These little birds are so beautiful and are a very rare site. Their feathers are as if someone took a paint brush as painted their feathers with colors of blue, yellow and red. Females are a pale greenish yellow with an eye ring around their eyes.
Painted Bunting are members of the Cardinal family but they remind me of a finch .
There is always a beautiful Bluebird working hard, feeding and fixing their nests.
The Meadow Lark below is a bird that is overlooked for its beauty but take a look at how bright yellow this little bird is. Their yellow underbelly color is amazing!
A few Blue Winged-Teal was swimming on one of the ponds and decided to fly. I was blessed with an amazing action shot as they left the water. There is nothing like getting an amazing action shot of ducks in flight.
The Red-Bellied Wood Pecker is a frequent visitor looking for corn and sunflower seeds at my feeders.
Just wanted to share and hope that you had the opportunity to get out and enjoy nature on such a beautiful day.
