Found in arctic areas around the world, Rock Ptarmigans have adapted to life in a harsh climate. In winter they turn pure white, allowing them to hide in snowy surroundings from predators such as fox and owls. In summer they have brownish feathers to blend with the tundra. Insects, seeds and fruit make up their summer diet. In winter, they are limited to seeds and whatever plant material they can find under the snow.
