Swallows in a snowstorm ~ photographer Keith Williams. Excellent set of photos! Migrating from Central America, these birds were caught in a freak snowstorm in May in the Yukon Territory of Canada.

The Bearded Reedling (Panurus biarmicus) is a small, sexually dimorphic reed-bed passerine bird. It is frequently known as the Bearded Tit.This species is a wetland specialist, breeding colonially in large reed beds by lakes or swamps. It eats reed aphids in summer, and reed seeds in winter, its digestive system changing to cope with the very different seasonal diets.
