The Painted Bunting pair is still in the back yard. Does that mean they're going to nest nearer than the dry woods? Or fly the dangerous long trip several times a day? Inquiring minds would like to know but the birds aren't telling. I did see the female at water today. A female cardinal came bouncing in (they do!) and attempted to drive the PB out of her chosen bathing spot, but instead the two shared one of the spaces between cobbles.
