Birds of a feather

It’s springtime in Nunavik and the willow ptarmigan are out looking for food and courtship, like this pair spotted outside of Kangiqsualujjuaq. The birds stay white through the winter months to remain camouflaged in the snow, but the head of the male willow ptarmigan changes to red and brown in the spring. (Photo by Felix St-Aubin)
