December Sun
 8 x 8

Snow buntings (Plectrophenax nivalis) appear in the area where I live usually late November, early December but I really only seem to notice them after the first big snow for some reason. Their ability to fly in unison as they swoop and dive between the trees and the ground reminds me of swallows. I love their goofy antics and charming portly appearance. One day, when my photography skills have improved, I would love to do an artwork of a whole flock flitting about after a good snow... for now, this little board will remind me of sunny winter days and sightings of these delightful birds.
