Bird Pic Of The Week

Snow Bunting

(Plectrophenax nivalis)

Where: Kiptopeke, VA • Kiptopeke State Park

Notes:After years of birding, the excitement of seeing a "Life Bird" (a species I'd never seen before) does not come often. One of the unforeseen benefits of taking up nature photography for me has been the renewed feeling of discovery that use to come each new sighting. Now I experience a similar unexpected fondness when photographing a new species for the first time, or whenever I improve upon a previous encounter's results. This holds true whether the bird is common or not. This rediscovering of each species gives me a new fondness for our land and all the animals.

This Snow Bunting was a rare visitor to Virginia's eastern shore at the southern most point of its wintering range. This six inch member of the Bunting family nests in the high tundra of the far north. This is its non-breeding plumage. This bird was discovered feeding on seed from the grasses surrounding the Kiptopeke State Park's marina area.
