Junco in winter
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The juncos appear with the snow in our yard each year, and stay still spring. Notice the buds on the tree - perhaps spring will still come this year after the worst winter I can remember, which just doesn't seem to want to leave!|
Dark-eyed Juncos are neat, even flashy little sparrows that flit about forest floors of the western mountains and Canada, then flood the rest of North America for winter. They’re easy to recognize by their crisp (though extremely variable) markings and the bright white tail feathers they habitually flash in flight. 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.

Excellent shot of this nice bird. Nice natural colours and composition
with fantastic sharpness details. And background are nice too.
A fantastic image of this cute bird. What a pleasure to view.
Très belle publication valorisant bien le sujet dans une belle attitude et sous une excellente profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
