Horned Lark, Snow Buntings (20131204) Snowy Investigation.
Although there have been a few Snowy Owls seen around here this year it is nothing like the irruption happening on the east coast. Everyone is scratching their head over why this has happened after just having a great year two years ago. Since Jamie and I had spotted a couple of birds further north I thought I would check my route that has been so productive over the past two years. It has been cold here and we just had a blizzard go through so there was no telling what I might find. The first birds of note was a small flock of 100 buntings, and just up the road I found some Horned Larks.
