The Snow Bunting is mostly non migratory bird but part of the population flies to Scotland for the winter. During the winter the birds travel around in big groups and they like to stay in an inhabited region when the winter is hard. Many people feed them during winter. Snow Buntings change their colour in the spring and their singing also changes. Then they are called “Sólskríkjur” which could be translated as “Sun gigglers”.
