Snow Buntings, Lapland Longspurs, Horned Larks and a Rosy-Finch

On the Walker Bench (fields SE of Rexburg) the recent snow seemed to concentrate the open country birds on the roads. I found about 1200 Horned Larks, about 150 Snow Buntings, 3 Lapland Longspur (one in immaculate breeding plumage), one lone Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch, and one accommodating Short-eared Owl. It was pretty spectacular. I'm sure the show will be over soon (the snow is already melting fast).
