Finally as we had a wee bit of snow and it was finally cold although it was extreme cold on this weekend. I found a nice flock of about 50 or so snow bunting flitting about. In amongst them a couple of morning doves. The cold clearly didn't bother them. This was what they needed. Is was great watching them for a few min from inside the car. They were flitting here and there without a care in the world. I have not seen any snow buntings this year. Twice I had a small flock and they were here one day and gone the next. This year has been so very different than other years. And seeing anything somedays is just not happening. Yet there have been reports of eastern medowlarks and bobolinks in out lying areas. Just not good.
