Painted buntings for Christmas in Florida, USA

This 20 December 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

In the southeast the Painted Bunting is the perfect Christmas bird. In the land of snow most people probably consider the Northern Cardinal for that role and they are all in the same family of finches; so I included a pretty female in the mix.

Note the red berries and dark green foliage of the invasive Brazilian pepper trees in the background – brought to Florida in the 19th century for Christmas color and now virtually impossible to eradicate.
