Snow Buntings breed in the high arctic and will winter well south of their breeding range. In eastern Ontario they can often be seen in flocks in open country, farm fields and on nearby rural roads, foraging. This image shows two Snow Buntings battling it out to establish the pecking order. Though they appear very gentle and graceful in flight (often resembling a snow storm as they take-off together), they can be very aggressive toward each other. Photographed in rural Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
