Interesting, by their body and bill shape I was thinking that they were related to the American Blackbirds and Orioles but they're not.

I confess to being an ignoramus with regard to the genealogy of birds. I am limited to simply loving and shooting them when I can, David. All birds are extraordinary creatures, I marvel at their endurance and aeronatical skills. But don't ask me to name any but the most common ones. *shrug

Having seen a couple of Snow Buntings this morning it got me thinking about their endurance. I remember a flock flying past me to roost at sunset in Saskatchewan in the winter when it was -40 and that was without the wind chill.
