House Finch, Snow Bunting

I have neglected to post for quite some time now. I had been finding quite a few new birds every week or so over the summer, but that slowed down significantly from September up until now.

There is more activity in my backyard lately compared to what I have been finding around Woodstock. I had a House Finch come for a few days for the first time not too long ago. It was actually the first I had seen in NB as well.

Over the weekend, I did happen to find around 20 Snow Buntings along the St.John River. There have been reports of them showing up around the provinces and I finally got a picture of this species. Hopefully I'll get one of the bird up close sometime as this bunch wouldn't stay still for very long.
