Winter Junco

Junco hyemalis
The junco is a genus of small sparrow. I believe this is a slate colored junco, a sub-species of the dark-eyed junco. (I looked it up.) We enjoy watching these round little birds as they hop around looking for food.


  1. Wonder if those little feet are cold?

  2. What a gorgeous photo! I love the way it's looking over its shoulder back at you. Aren't little birds just precious?

  3. Cute little guy. Looks like he was posing just for you.

  4. Beautiful shot!
