Canvassed In An Electric Technicolor Dreamsuit Of Color Is A Bird With Interesting Characteristics

The orange-breasted bunting, or Passerina leclancherii, is a type of passerine bird in the Cardinalidae family. The male adult orange breasted bunting is around 5 inches long.

The male adult has a pale green crown with a nape colored turquoise blue. His upper-parts are frequently touched with green, and he has a turquoise tail.

The male adult’s eye-ring, lore and tummy have a canary yellow color, extending to golden orange on the breast area. The female adult orange bunting has dim green upper-parts and yellow-colored underparts.

The male and female buntings have eye-rings which are yellow in color. The orange breasted bunting can be found in, and is endemic to, the Pacific incline of Mexico.

Looking for where to specifically find this bird? These birds like to reside in the subtropical or tropical dry forest regions and in the subtropical or arid shrub-land.

You can also find them in bushy deciduous forest, thorny thickets, clearings, and the edges of lush edges, up to an altitude of 3,000 feet. These birds, however, are more bountiful in secondary growth than in undisturbed woods.

In the winter, the orange breasted bunting likes to feast on seeds and then feed on insects during the summer. Correspondingly, they have bills which are smaller than most cardinalids.
