The orange-breasted bunting is one of these spectacular birds. Just look at its plumage and you will definitely agree with our words. It’s covered in canary yellow (belly) and turquoise blue (back, wings, and tail). Additionally, it has a pale green crown and golden-orange breast. This color combination makes this bird a luminous ball of feathers. Awesome!

Like many other species, the female orange-breasted bunting is duller than the male. She has grey-green upperparts and yellow underparts. However, both sexes have yellow eye-rings.

This stunning small bird is a species of passerine bird in the Cardinalidae family. Native to the Pacific slope of Mexico, this species prefers living in tropical dry forested areas and arid scrubland, thorny thickets, bushy deciduous woodland, and clearings. They also inhabit the edges of wooded edges at an altitude of 3,000 feet.

These birds breed from May through to June. After finding mates, the females will build the cup-shaped nests on their own. These nests are made from rootlets, grasses, and dry leaves and placed in a low bush or thick scrub. Female birds then lay 3-4 eggs inside the nests and incubate them. They continue to feed the chicks until fully-fledged.

Regarding the diets, orange-breasted buntings dine mainly on seeds in winter. When the summer comes, they hunt insects for food.
