There was a small patch of Rose Garden this bird was frequenting for several days. I stayed for at least an hour and a half and was lucky enough for the bird to come within 3 feet of me while he was feeding. It is not often that you can take pictures with a close up setting on the camera. This sometimes winter visitor was found in a very strange location indeed. Snow Buntings are typically found here on gravelly spits along the water where there are some grass seeds left from the fall. This migrant was refilling for the trip north, among the venerable halls of Simon Fraser University. It was quite a busy location with construction on one side and the roaring buses on the other.
