Male Painted Bunting!

It’s not a great shot, but boy, is it a great shot. 🙂 Look at what rafa snapped a photo of at 11:25 this morning:

We previously had a couple of shots of a female Painted Bunting, so it isn’t a new ID, but I’ve been hoping we could get a shot of a male. It’s a bird I’ve never seen in real life, and always wanted to.

So, that bare-sticks tree beyond the pond is the happening place. I had a couple of bad shots I threw away of the Ladder-backed Woodpecker in there today (he was moving too fast for me).

Congratulations, rafa! We’re all jealous.
