I couldn't find a bird ID forum so I'm asking here. These guys showed up in our yard yesterday...thinking from up North maybe. I am in Eastern Ontario Canada. When they fly their wings are white underneath and mostly white on top with a black/brown tip. They have a blush coloured band around their neck and on their sides. These birds move as one....totally synchronized in a flock of about 25 +.

Pretty little things. You might try posting in the Wildlife forum which has a bird thread.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Hi Lee Ann -- I think those are what we usually call "snowbirds" around here; actually Snow Buntings. Smiling
