After a few days in the good company of photography students, I’m off today in search of Rough-legged Hawks, Snow Buntings and other grassland delights, including this one, Horned Lark.

Thanks, Judy and Kristen. That shot came from Idaho. But they’re all over the plowed farm fields of Addison County now, with Snow Buntings and some American Pipits.
I love the picture of your horned lark! Where are the grasslands in which you are birding?
I had a pine siskin at my feeder two days ago.
I saw some Horned Larks up close yesterday and, as I often am, was struck by their beauty. Their plumage is a wonderful combination of both warbler and sparrow. And especially this time of year when the landscape is so stark, that little bit of yellow pops right out.
