I saw a male Painted Bunting in the Educational Forest this morning. This is the third year in a row that I have seen one there. I am assuming it is the same bird. He was singing a song that sounded more like an Indigo Bunting than a Painted Bunting. It seems odd he would keep coming back when there aren't any females. Do buntings interbreed?
