Snow?? No Just Snow Buntings

Friends, this beautiful bird is visiting this winter having migrated from somewhere up near the Arctic circle.  This snow bunting is in non-breeding plumage and note the feathers around the top part of the legs that protect them from ice and snow.  He is walking along the edge of Phantom Lake in Crex Meadows on a beautiful sunny Sunday. til Tomorrow MJ
