Right now New Yorkers are going nuts over a very beautiful and colorful bird that has dropped in for a visit to Prospect Park Brooklyn. NYC is on the pathway used by many migratory birds and so human natives who live here or visitors get to see a huge range of birds that are not native to this area.
Right now this cheery little fellow, called a Painted Bunting has dropped in and apart from people being delighted by how colorful and beautiful he or she is, there’s been a chance to listen to the very attractive ‘singing’ that the bird does, see the second video.
Painted buntings are very rare visitors to this City as their natural habitat is around Mexico, Florida and Texas. They are members of the ‘cardinal’ family and this brightly colored bird is regarded as the most beautiful of all birds in North America.
So thank you for dropping in gorgeous bird and feel free to come back any time.
