[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Busy Eating” is the name of this photo taken after standing in the snow until my feet got cold. These dark-eyed Juncos eventually became familiar with me and began to emerge from the thick tree cover.
One of the most abundant forest birds of North America, you’ll see juncos on woodland walks as well as in flocks at your feeders or on the ground beneath them. They winter in Newfoundland; this shot was taken in Mount Pearl.

Tu as fait une très belle photo du Junco ardoisé, excellent POV, excellent DOF, j'aimes son contact-visuel avec toi,et le brillant dans l'oeil.
Sperbe netteté et superbe détails de l'oiseau et de la neige.

Hello Jim,
A super shot of this pretty little Junco. You have captured exceptional detail and beautiful colors. Nicely composed with perfect exposure!! Great original notes!!
I have a flock of these little guys which visit my feeder regularly. They seem to prefer to feed from the ground and clean up the excess feed that other birds knock from the feeder.

Hi Jim.

Very good clarity of yours picture.Congratulations.
Best regards.Alin.
