Painted buntings arrive in the Carolinas usually in April and stay throughout the summer, migrating south during the month of August. In South Carolina, painted buntings also favor the coast, but breed well inland in low country agricultural shrub. As coastal habitats continue to be developed at unprecedented levels, and as more inland shrub is cleared, these spectacular birds are losing their homes.
