Kudos to Doug and Spencer for their documentation of such an interesting avian occurrence. Read the paper and did not see any mention of what this finch's primary diet was at this elevation. Thinking that they are seed eaters and it is an ice covered area was curious.

Thanks for your note, Doug. Your research is fascinating, and we're happy to feature it. I enjoyed seeing the photos on your site.

Wow, you posted this faster than a diving Peregrine! There are lots of photos and additional information about these glacier birds at my website (click name below).
