Dark-eyed Junco
junco hyemalis

Are one of the most abundant forest birds in North America. They breed in northern Canada and winter in southern Canada and the U.S.

I always know it's spring when the Junco's appear. They seem to come out of hiding when it warms up. They love to hop around on the ground looking for seeds to feed on.

Hello Janice

Beautiful photo of the Dark-eyed Junco while it is snowing,
fine POV and framing in a beautiful scenery,
excellent details of its dark plumage, TFS


Hi Janice,

I like the pine cones and spruce that provides a resting place for a bird in need. I see it is snowing as you shot this image. Great focus and POV is excellent. Well done.


Hallo Janice
Images like these, filled with snow, birds and snow covered trees always reminds me of Christmas, no matter what time of year it is. This is such a friendly and "natural" looking image, which I like a lot. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Attractive winter scene in a marvellous composition. A pity that the bird is a bit too much in the background. Beautiful colours too.
All the best for the new year to you and your family,
