Snowing Buntings

It’s snowing in New England. This Snow Bunting photo reminds us of a blizzard of birds. Snow Buntings are beautiful, small birds that breed in Alaska and the Arctic and winter in lower Canada and across much of the U.S. They stay in large flocks in winter, feeding on the ground on weed seeds. To keep warm, they may even burrow in the snow!
