How about a Drift of Snow Buntings (and a herd of cows too)! These birds hung around for quite a while and it was fun watching them in our fields over several days.

Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Awesome.
I did a quick, rough count of 250 to 300. That's obviously only part of the flock.
Must make for a heck of a din, especially if they took off in unison..
Love the photo.

They do make quite a racket and if they’re leaving a dry bean or corn field they will create a mini dust storm. :-)

These are really lovely, and reveal so much more of our natural environs.
And the wildlife that makes it what it is.

Beautifully photographed.

Thanks Frank, for starting this.
I'm enjoying the unfolding vistas presented here.
