"A male painted bunting in @prospect_park today. This avian connoisseur of grassland has never been seen in Brooklyn before. Since it was discovered on Sunday, crowds of #birdwatchers have rushed, quietly, to get a look at that brilliant indigo head, those yellow shoulders shading to chartreuse and then green, the scarlet-orange underparts. For much of the day, the bird's actions were unremarkable: Duck, bob, peck, hop. Duck, bob, peck, hop. But at one point, for about 30 seconds, the boldly colored bunting put on a show. @kirstenluce photographed @prospect_park's #paintedbunting while on #nytassignment alongside @nytimes reporter Andy Newman. #🐦" By nytimes on Instagram.
