Lapland Longspur, buntings & larks

The farms in Addison County, Vermont, are hosting many flocks of Snow Buntings and Horned Larks. We drove many of the roads; flocks were constantly flying from the roadside and swirling about the barns and feed areas. Here are a few images ...

Snow many Buntings! Very cool. I'm sorry I couldn't find any in Pennsylvania a few weeks ago.
