Happy new year eve

I saw Snow Bunting at 31th/Dec at Atuma, it was twice to see the bunting !
The first my finding was two years ago in Kiritappu, eastern Hokkaido, so I was very happy to see it at my normal observation area.

They made a flock with Lapland Bunting (Lapland 10 and Snow3).

 They ate seed of dead grass.


In the same day, I took photo of Falcon, Rough-legged, and Short-eared.
It was happy final day of 2011 for me.


  1. Wow! They look really beautiful in the snow and winter grass.

  2. In this winter, many buntings observed around Hokkaido.

    Thanks comment.
