Snow bunting, Jeroen Reneerkens (


Buntings are small warblers, closely resembling the finch. Their beak is totally adapted to eating seeds. They prefer to live on the ground and avoid inhabited areas. There are few birds that brood as far north as the bunting. You find them as far as Siberia during nesting season.
