These birds live up to their name. They look like they were painted to perfection with beautiful bright colors. Each bird looks unique and different with a variety of colors. Their colors range from blue, yellow, green, red, and orange to name a few.

You will most likely see them in Mexico or the Southern United States.

They are common birds, they are not going extinct. However, even with their bright colors, you might have trouble spotting them around. This is because they will forage for seeds in low, dense brush.

However, don’t let this stop you from trying to see them. There are things you can do to lure them around your house. Where you place your feeder makes all the difference in the world.

Hang a feeder low to the ground and in dense brush. This will most likely attract them, especially more than having a high feeder.

Where to Find Them

During the breeding season, you will most likely find them in a couple of Southern states such as Texas, Arizona, Louisana, and Oklahoma.

During migration season though, they will most likely be spotted around the border of Mexico. This season is around the wintertime.

If you live in the southern states, be sure to be on the lookout for these beautiful painted bunting birds! They will bring life and happiness in your life with their bright colors.
