Winter Willow Ptarmigan Bird Picture

Camouflaged amongst the snowy tundra of Churchill, Manitoba a Willow Ptarmigan is one type of bird that is hard to spot in the winter around the Hudson Bay.

During the winter months, a Willow Ptarmigan has plumage that is white in color to protect it from any predators and during the summer its coloring is a mixture of reddish brown and white. On the icy tundra in Churchill, Manitoba, a Willow Ptarmigan is barely visible in this picture as it blends in with the landscape.
