A male painted bunting receives his bright plumage around the time of his second birthday. Once a popular pet, the painted bunting now flies free throughout the southeastern United States. They're often found pulling seeds out of swamps with their small beaks. Indigo buntings are often confused for painted buntings, but their bright blue feathers make them look more like miniature blue jays. Decorate your home with our beautiful posters featuring these birds.
