Snow Bunting female

Posted by
Jypyä Pop (Turku, Finland) on 11 March 2016 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Snow Bunting live in the summer in Northern Finland. It winters in South-West Russia and the North Sea coast. It is a highly endangered species. This is the first time such a bird in the wild. The loft had stopped to rest and dine.

Oh, I like this shot. This place is not beautiful but it seems it is the best place for her...

@fateme@@: Thank you. I went the next day in the same place watching whether more of them. I did not see any birds. They were probably left towards Lapland, where they nest.

A beautiful bird and what a rare capture, Jypyae ---- never venture out without camera !!! Kind regards MN

@Shiva: The bird is very rare in this region, and usually it sees only the migratory journey time. The camera is always involved when it is possible .

BiLL from Carrickfergus, United Kingdom

Excellent image. I had to look very carefully to see the bird because of its camouflage.

11 Mar 2016 8:15pm

@BiLL: Thanks. Good camouflage is a way to survive in the wild. There is always a threat hungry neighbor.
