Although it’s a little early in the season to be thinking of Snow Buntings in Chicago, this is my favorite shot from the day last November when I first heard of Great Bird Pics as I observed a small flock of buntings at Montrose Point with a congenial group of birders. So, it seemed like a good photo for my first post to Great Bird Pics. This bunting, feathers fluffed against the cool breeze, had found a protected spot at the base of a small sand dune for its leisurely lunch, unperturbed by its human audience. Hopefully, these delightful birds will be returning again soon.
Welcome Russ! Yes we had a fun group last fall photographing the Buntings. Nice shot of this bird snacking away on some seeds. I look forward to seeing more of your shots.
Great shot Russ,, one of my favorite birds to photograph when the colder weather arrives.
