[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's an old shot from the end of September 2007. I had to crop it, but I left enough rock so everyone could see how well it blends in with it.

A flash of white tail feathers serves as an alarm to other members of the flock.
The Dark-eyed Junco was the most common feeder bird in North America during the 1996-1997 Project FeederWatch season.
They mainly eat insects and seeds. However, they will sometimes eat their own droppings.
A group of sparrows has many collective nouns, including a "crew", "flutter", "meinie", "quarrel", and "ubiquity" of sparrows.
