Another Winter Visitor

Here's another bird that visits western Pennsylvania in winter.

I always see snow buntings near Miller's Pond in Crawford County -- the same place as the rough-legged hawk pictured last weekend -- but they can be anywhere that resembles their tundra home.

In summer snow buntings are black and white.  In winter they're cream and brown to match the vegetation.

Cory DeStein found this one two weeks ago while on a Pitt bird club outing to Imperial grasslands in Allegheny County.
