Snow Bunting…size 6 3/4 in (17cm)..Often swirl around over snow fields or dunes in flocks, sometimes mixed with Horned larks or Lapland Lonspurs. No other North American songbird (except McKay’s Bunting) shows so much white. In winter some individuals, especially females and immatures, may look quite brown, but when flying, their flashy white wing parts identify them.
Habitats: Prairies, fields, dunes and shores…In summer tundras.
