In the winter the Snow Bunting is almost all white except for a black back and tail, but in summer it is a brownish color with white. They have a range of arctic, circumpolar to Canada and the central United States. They have a habitat of prairies, fields, dunes, shores, and tundra. They can be seen flocking together in low grass fields and swirling through the air from place to place. The diet is mostly seeds and insects, and they forage in flocks while walking and running on the ground. They are very skittish, and are usually remote from effects of human activity.
