Pine Bunting

Emberiza leucocephalos

A very rare vagrant to North America, this species has only been recorded in western Alaska during the late fall in October and November. The only Pribilof record (St. Paul Island) follows this late fall pattern of occurrence, which is typical for hardy species such as Old World Buntings in the Pribilofs.
