Throwback Thursday

Snow Bunting

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan in the late 1990s and a bitterly cold winter morning. Around -30°C without the wind chill if I recall correctly.

I had found a small flock of Snow Buntings feeding on a field of stubble partially covered in snow. I was photographing the birds from the open window of my pickup truck. It meant that I was sheltered from the wind a little and the birds were ignoring the vehicle when they may not have ignored a human on foot.

The birds were well camouflaged against the snow and stubble. I find the fact that such small birds can survive the winter temperatures in Saskatchewan impressive.
