Additional Information

The blue bunting is a songbird native to Central America. The male has a dark blue body and the female is brown with a gray beak. The blue bunting can be found in forests and woodland edges. They forage for seeds, insects and larvae on the forest floor.

This button was a give-away button from American Pepsin Gum Company. Many gum manufactures in the late 1800's used pepsin powder in their chewing gum and marketed it as a way to aid in digestion.  Pepsin was thought to settle stomach issues and help people with digestive concerns.
