Snow Bunting

Lunch on the Beach

Viewed 46 Times

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.
Good Birding!


Say cheese!
