Interesting to note is that PB 46 hosted a bird from PB 3!! One of the first instances of a bird from a different feeder/location showing up elsewhere. Now that we are in Season 4, maybe birds that have survived this long are starting to establish new patterns.
We have received a report of a banded Painted Bunting (one of ours!) at a new location. It was originally banded in November, 2014 in Lake Worth. It was first seen at the new place on November 27 in Boynton Beach. The bird was in its male colors when it was banded which means it was born earlier than 2014. This bird is at least 3 years old (soon to be 4 when all banded birds age a year in January!).
