Singing Painted Bunting video



47 seconds of a Painted Bunting singing in Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge on May 12, 2007. This species was the #2 Most Wanted Bird in a recent Birder's World poll!

  1. Wow, Laura, that's so cool! I have some house finches in my yard that sound sorta like him.

  2. If you can imagine it, Painted Buntings aren't just common in the Wichita Mountains--they're ABUNDANT. It was hard to find places where you could stand without hearing at least one. Took my breath away!

  4. A Painted Bunting has been spotted north of Silver Bay on the North Shore of MN. Way out of its range.
