Painted Bunting

The notice that this beautiful bird was being seen here in NJ was put out on the Jersey Birds list. I took the (gorgeous) day off today to head to Cape May and my last stop was to see if I could find this rarity. I showed up at the property and waited 45 minutes. I was getting up to leave when I saw a flash of red in the trees at the edge of the property - it was him! I waited quietly for a while and he came to the feeder where I could get a better look. All of those colors were just a spectacle.
