This bird visited our bird feeder. He is brown with blue markings. His beak is somewhat parakeet like. I took this photo through the window but it is not that clear.

Do you know what it is? This is the first time we have seen it at the feeder.

Thank you. Maybe I will get lucky and see a painted bunting which is native to this area.

In my bird books, he looks like a Varied Bunting. If it is, he is off course as he is a Mexican species, found in Arizona and Texas.
