Finally

1/640 sec. f/8 ISO 500

We typically don't have juncos at the feeders, but recently a few have appeared. This one was kind enough to give me a few seconds with the camera.

Dark-eyed Junco

Beautiful photo ! We have lots of these little guys . Each season we have 20 to 30 different breeds of birds in our yard at our feeders at one time or other ! Have a good weekend !

Glad you were able to get the shot of this cute bird. I love Juncos and had a lot here last year. This year I have not seen one.

That's a good shot of the Junco. I like their pink bills.

I saw a Junco early last year, but haven't seen any since. Hopefully my feeder will draw them again one day.

A wonderful shot of this little snowbird. I hope he's on his way north.

I hope that means they're leaving my part of the world and spring is here. Great shots.
