Snow Bunting at Thomas Point Lighthouse

My friend Barry C., emailed me yesterday about looking for the Snow Bunting reported at Thomas Point Lighthouse, so we set out under sunny, warm skies out to find it. After an hour or so, a fellow birder found it and we got some good pictures. Afterward, we went to Truxtun Park for a quick look around.

Snow Bunting

The Snow Bunting nests in the Arctic. From Wikipedia:”No other passerine can winter as far north as this species apart from the Common Raven.”

This Belted Kingfisher gave us a flying and fishing exhibition.
