Birding with Jerry Hall: Rainbow-hued bird is one of a kind
I recently spotted a male painted bunting feeding on the ground at the Patsy Glenn Refuge in Wimberley. What a beautiful bird. It has to be one of North America’s most brilliant species, a gaudy combination of red, green, yellow and blue.
The French settlers in Louisiana called the painted bunting “nonpareil” – without equal. It certainly is a one-of-a-kind bird.
