Snow Bunting

Newer Older

:: BIGGER is recommended!

Snow Bunting (Bruant des Neiges) breeds across the arctic regions of the world, and, in Canada, its appearance in the more southerly parts of the country heralds the approach of winter. They are usually seen in small flocks in open fields and along shorelines where they feed mainly on weed seeds and insects. A sizable flock swirling over a field in winter can be a spectacular sight. They usually depart for their arctic breeding grounds in early spring where they raise four to seven young. The male Snow Bunting returns to its high Arctic breeding grounds in early April, when temperatures can still dip as low as -30° C (-22° F) and snow still covers most of the ground. The female does not return until four to six weeks later.
