Snow Buntings


No guarantees for re-locating, if one takes a drive to find, but have seen sev large groups of Snow Buntings in past wk. One group of about 30 was just north of Challis on Hwy 93, west side of road. And, yest 3 good-sized groups on Hwy 26 between Arco & Craters. One group had at least 100 birds. The groups have been "flighty" &, unlike Horned Larks, not keen on returning immediately to roadside, often setting down 50 yds + off hwy & then just, taking off. All have been in fields with open expanses of snow coverage. Didn't see any Larkspurs, wind was brutal & difficult to stay focused on any one bird. Wouldn't surprise me if some were present though.
