The SNOW was seen Tuesday morning fr0m Basin Harbor Rd. north of the intersection with Crown Point Road, on the west side of the road, on a fence post in a swale. This is a white bird, and my question is why the immature have dark feathering? I know that black feathers are stronger, but can’t make the next step. The dark feathers make the bird more conspicuous against snow.
