snow bunting and horned lark
How bizarre that the instant I click the shutter a horned lark flies through my field of view and the
Snow Bunting still manages to steal the show.  This was so cute I just had to post it.  © Carol Davis, 1-2-2008

Snow bunting
As I was leaving Antelope Island, I spotted the first flock of Horned Larks I had seen all day. There were
just seven larks and what a shock to find this little Snow Bunting with them.  What are the odds?
I hadn't seen one for a few years so I really enjoyed watching it flit around, hopping upon all the
rocks in the area and just looking cute. © Carol Davis, 1-2-2008
