Bunting Girl

This is a female Painted Bunting that visited my feeders all last Winter. I'm hoping she'll return this year, and maybe bring a mate with her! The males are the ones with the brilliant multicolored plumage. I've only ever seen one in my yard, and he stayed back in the corner in the "butterfly/hummingbird" garden, chasing insects. By the time I got my camera, he was gone. Maybe this year, a pretty little female like her can tempt him to the pleasures of the feeders!

I've only seen an indigo bunting male and he was passing through.
