Thanks Karen, very excited to realize that they may be hanging around my neighborhood. I live outside of Hilton Head Island. I believe we have 3 males here already.

I've been to Hilton Head and really enjoyed Pinckney Wildlife refuge. Did you find them there?

Hope you get several more chances to photograph them!

Karen,

I live in a gated community about a 20 minutes north of Pinckney Wildlife Refuge. The buntings are hanging around our feeders at our outfitters center, on the Okatie River. Two days ago I placed a specific feeder in my yard to see if I can bring them right to my backyard. Our naturalist said that two of my neighbors have already seen them in their yards.

Here's a female I photographed on the same day as the male.
