I visited the Columbia Bottoms Conseration Area and observed my FOL Snow Bunting.  It was amongst a nice flock of Longspurs and mixed Sparrow sp.  It was fun to pick-out its call versus the longspurs and its white wingbar really stood out, making it easy to spot in the snow and weeds.  Chris Mcclaren with her husband and Al Smith saw the bird as well. Trumpeter Swans calling from behind in the fields made for a nice back drop!
