Camouflage With Snow

Published by at 7:30 am under Songbirds

Again on the theme of camouflage…

Here’s a snow bunting whose winter plumage is makes him hard to see on partially snow-covered ground.

His eye is like a dark pebble, his brown cheek and necklace like mud between the melting snow.

    Kate, I read your blog most every day and I know people who photograph birds
    and I refer your URL whenever I can. Thank you for capturing beauty, I used to
    prefer to look for leaves but on the way there were some birds tagging along.
