"Art from the Arctic: Inuit Prints and Sculpture" (11/20/09-2/14/10) exhibition label text:

The ptarmigan, a bird about the size of a small chicken, lives in the Arctic all year. To withstand the cold, feathers cover its beak and feet. Its feathers change with the seasons – white for winter and brown when the snow melts.
