Willow Ptarmigan Bird

This bird named the Willow Ptarmigan is barely visible amongst the snow in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Churchill, Manitoba.

If it was not for the black eyes and beak on this Willow Ptarmigan that walks across the tundra of Churchill, Manitoba, one may never see him. This bird has plumage that turns snow white in the winter as a means of camouflage but come summer, the Willow Ptarmigan has a reddish brown coloring to him.
