Big movement of birds yesterday

After the┬ánasty storm and cold front that moved into Minnesota, the big winds brought many birds down from up north. I had to go to town and on the way down there I couldn’t help but notice the big flocks of Snow Buntings on the roadside.

On the way back home later in the afternoon I tried to do a rough estimate of the numbers. I counted 300 Snow Buntings just between Orr and Crane Lake, which is a distance of 30 miles.
