MVFN Nature Notebook Sighting: Hundreds of Snow Buntings

Sighting received Jan 11, 2017: Lise Balthazar is seeing hundreds of Snow Buntings on her property and sends some photos:

” The numbers have been gradually increasing and we now have about 200 birds visiting and feeding every day. I feed them white millet. I keep in touch with the Snow Bunting Network; they have volunteers who do banding of those birds to track their movements and to try to understand why their numbers are declining. For years now, I have been asking that group if someone could come and band some of our birds, but I haven’t had any success yet.”
