Female Lapland Bunting (Calcarius lapponicus) Greenland

This is a female Lapland Bunting although if you only glance at the photograph it looks like a male because the male is standing behind and you can see his bright chestnut nape. Females are much more soberly coloured than the males, and this is more what they look like when they appear in Britain in autumn and winter.
