Snow Buntings

A few days ago, we had 40 Snow Buntings land in our large, weedy field in front of our house. These beautiful, pale little sparrows breed in the arctic tundra and come down into this country in winter. It was such a treat to see them fluttering across the field, their brown and white winter plumage making them so camouflaged against the snow and brown weeds.

Oh how fun! I would love to see a snow bunting, or two. Nice picture.
