King of the Hill
It seems every time I try to get photos of snow buntings it is snowing, which is somehow appropriate.
It is a small song bird with a lot of white in its plumage.
The male Snow Bunting returns to its high Arctic breeding grounds in early April, when temperatures can still dip as low as -30° C (-22° F) and snow still covers most of the ground. The female does not return until four to six weeks later.
