500 Snow Buntings at Rafferty's Corners

Photo by Barry Wallace
There were approximately 500 Snow Buntings in a field on the north side of the King Road, between Temperanceville and Rafferty's Corners (Dufferin Street) on Wednesday of this week.   They would glean seeds one minute, from dead plant stems in the snow, and then swoop and swirl in the air for another minute, then repeating the alternation over and over.   It was lovely to behold.
