On this day (February 11th).....................


February 11th 2014.

A male Pine Bunting at Sawara 4 years ago today. This species is a scarce winter visitor, generally occurring the coast and very mobile as they move from one snowy windswept beach to another so perhaps a but overlooked.

This was part of a small flock and proved a nice sideshow to that winter's Gyrfalcon on the same location.
