Just as Christmas comes once a year, so do the painted buntings to our yard. Or perhaps I should say painted bunting – as in one. This is the third year in a row we’ve had this lovely visitor, this time just outside our living room window, at the corn feeder rather than at the way-out-in-the-yard seed feeders. All three years it’s been an absolute stroke of luck to see them at all, as they only hang around for a few minutes. And, just like Christmas, I consider each sighting a true gift – thanks, Garden Ssnta!
