A familiar friend from the snowbound countryside

Email

You are driving over the river and through the woods for the holidays. Along the way, you traverse many miles of blacktop or gravel roads across a treeless, seemingly barren landscape. Little in the way of variation excites the senses. Suddenly, a cloud of mostly white birds bursts up from the roadside and off into a field. You realize after a time that this has happened many times during your trip. The birds you are seeing are Snow Buntings (Plectrophenax nivalis).
