Buntings seem to have flown straight out of a child’s coloring book. Females and immatures are a distinctive bright green with a pale eye ring. These fairly common finches breed in the coastal Southeast and in the south-central U.S. Hand-carved in the Adirondacks in basswood. Carved with a Buck #307 jackknife and hand-painted with acrylics. This fellow is perched on driftwood with a few sunflower seeds which is a favorite meal.
