Yesterday this lone Snow Bunting landed on my ridge. The little guy is stopping on his way back to the real "frozen tundra." I think he has the most white of any bunting I have seen... he was gone this morning on his long trip north.

Nice capture db, what a fine looking bird. Maybe some more will come by! I'm sorry I had to work today and didn't get out. Rain on the way for tomorrow, so maybe no photos this week. Saw some Condors up at the rim while I was driving the bus, and that's always a good thing.

The setting in this image is so lovely, with the surrounding colours adding to the beauty of the bird. A wonderful capture, Dave.

Great shot Dave. Haven't seen any here for two years now, when a small flock came to our local park.

This was an exceptionally white one, right in the height of breeding plumage I suspect... thank you Stan.

They usually are in flocks of a dozen or so, they are so stunning in a drab environment... you must be in a record precipitation mode at the canyon, hope you can get out soon... do you still have snow on the ground? Thanks Steve.

Thanks so much Levina... one of my first migrants coming through.

Good morning Mitch... hope you get some there this spring... thanks.

I see more of them in the late fall, early winter and now more sparingly... thank you for commenting.

A great shot, Dave. I saw several large flocks of snow buntings on my weekend ramble, but only from a great distance. Good for you for getting so close.

Nice catch, Dave. Snow Buntings are such pretty birds and so tough to get close to. Excellent job.
