This painting shows both male and female of this strikingly coloured songbird. Painted Buntings are birds of open, bushy habitats with scattered trees, including woodland borders, roadside thickets and weedy fields. Breeding over a large proportion of the southern-central United States and the Atlantic coast, it winters mainly in southern Florida, Mexico and Central America.
