Siete Colores.... Painted Bunting

I think this bird rates right on up there as the prettiest bird in Texas. Siete Colores translates to '7 colors' and it is obvious that this little rainbow has at least that many colors happening. I was just discussing this bird with cousin Tom Poth just this weekend. I had told him that my thinking was that they migrate through this area of Texas at the end of May. Well, I spotted this bird today. Maybe he is a scout or the birds are migrating earlier because of the dry weather.

Beautiful birds! We have some kind of little yellow ones that flit around cute. :)
