Happy Summer Painted Buntings!!

Hello PBOTs!  Dr. Jamie here! It’s officially summer, and I wanted to wish everyone and our Painted Buntings a Happy Summer!  Thanks again our Florida Friends for taking such good care of the Painted Buntings during the winter.  Now that it is summer, and the weather is heating up, be sure to keep your feeders clean and full of white millet for your Painted Buntings!  I heard from some observers that young green birds are already showing up at feeders.  Painted Buntings can have multiple nestings, so this may be the first brood out of the nest and fledged.

Hello November PBOTs!

Hi November PBOTs!
