I had a terrific hour with a large flock of Snow Buntings on Saturday. Heavy overcast skies, -15C 30-40 km winds, an overall nasty day. But I had the good fortune to get "inside the flock" for a couple of acceptable shots (at least ones that I am happy with, and I have a much lower standard that most that post here.)
Nikon D7000
Sigma 120-300mm OS F2.8 with 1.4 TC
ISO 400 1/800 F8

Best images I have yet for this tough little bird. I also love the fact that is spring, and the breeding colours are appearing.
