The most northerly songbird, an Arctic delight
Our Expert Says… "The males are stunning-looking birds. Unlike many migrants, they molt while still at their breeding grounds and not when further south. This is probably because there are still plenty of insects so they can fatten up here a little longer than other species with a different food source."
The snow bunting is an Arctic specialist songbird, with the most northerly distribution of all of the songbirds (or passerines).
