Winter visitors

Winter. I love it. Some birds love it as well. Yes, there are actually birds who call our area home during the coldest of months. One- the Lapland Longspur, nests in the very northern parts of Canada on the open tundra. They come south a bit to hang out in open fields. These birds, along with Snow Buntings and Horned Larks are generally the ones who fly up from the edges of rural roads. Sometimes they can mess with you as they drop into corn stubble and, quite simply, just disappear.
