Painted Bunting

The Painted Bunting is considered to be a "near threatened" species. They are being abused by humans who trap them illegally to sell as cage birds. Conservation efforts are being made which includes the study of their migration patterns and many are banded as can be seen in these photos taken at Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina.
