Sunday afternoon while walking along Brace Cove I by chance met up with my friend Michelle. I was showing her where to look for the Lark Sparrow when Michelle spotted a beautiful male Snow Bunting, and then we spotted a second! They were pecking at the sand looking for seeds caught between the granules.
Also called “Snowflakes,” their arrival on our shores seems appropriate enough for the pending snowstorm 🙂
An interesting note about Snow Buntings. Male Snow Buntings look very different in their breeding and non-breeding plumage. Not due to molting, but because they rub their bellies and heads in the snow, wearing down brown feather tips to reveal pure white feathers beneath.
Forecast for the winter storm this first week in December is troubling enough to call the first snow day for the 2019-20 school year.
Gloucester schools closed tomorrow 12/3/19
Intrepid GMG Jimmy on the back shore earlier today. Almost like having Jim Cantore and the Weather Channel in town! Haha

It was quiet and peaceful at St. Peter’s marina yesterday afternoon although a little bit dreary. Still beautiful.
