I went to Rye State Beach since I was in Portsmouth for Thanksgiving. I was hoping to spy a Snowy Owl. Had no luck in that department, but just as we were leaving the area, I saw 5 birds fly in which looked liked possible Snow Buntings. They were! Such a beautiful winter visitor! These birds can be found locally during our winters, but they spend their summers in the high Arctic. I love their rouged cheeks!
