Olive bird

by Lisa
(Jacksonville, fl.)

This bird is shaped like a Painted bunting, but is almost solid greenish olive withe throat feathers that are a ruddy reddish color. I have looked at every picture I can find, and do not see it. I think it may be a female of a more colorful counterpart, or an immature variety. It has been at my feeder off and on for about one month .

No idea but here is a resource that might help! NEW

I have no clue what your bird might be but the following web site has lots of pictures of various colors of birds including things like immature male birds and breeding and non-breeding plumage etc. They even have links to similar birds which sometimes helps! http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/search

I did look for variations on the painted bunting and birds similar to the painted bunting and I came up with nothing. A picture always helps (but I know I do not possess a digital camera which can capture useful bird images so I understand the issue there).

But good luck! And let us know if you figure it out!
