My last post was a male (Dark eyed "Slate-colored" Junco), today I show you the female. The female is similar to the male except it has more browns blended into it's plumage.

Both sexes have the same cute pinkish colored beaks and white underparts. Juncos are said to be fairly common in Ohio, but I seem to see them only in the winter months here around my home.

Juncos make very distinct short high pitched chipping sounds which are quite lovely to hear. If you wish to listen to their beautiful calls click here

Hi Ron,absolutely perfect this close up of the female,the sharpness is fantastic everywhere,great use of flash like in your last post,very very well done! Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ron,
Beautiful close up with spectacular moirée effect on the plumage. :-) Excellent, sharp details, nice composition, and I love your light balance also even a very small part of the white plumage seems a touch overexposed on my laptop. In spite of this, a top class photo overall. Bravo.
Best regards, László

Hello Ron!
What a great shot you have presented here. Superb sharpness and perfect details on this little female Junco. Excellent use of camera's flash to highlight this bird which is in perfect contrast with a fine darker BG. Well done and thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,

Hello Ron - Very beautiful picture of this female Junco species. Excellent light and sharpness, as well as BG. I like the way you do PP work. Thanks for sharing. Regards

Hi Ron,

What a post of this Dark eyed Junco.......stunned details and sharpness. The browns blended into it's plumage is well shown on her head. The soft blue BG goes well with the plumage of the bird perfectly. Regards

Hello Ron,
What a cute attitude you have caught here..this female looks very shy. Love the colors and the impeccable presentation.
Happy New Year.

Hello Ron,
Excellent capture of a lovely colorful bird. Superb details, colors and focus.
As usual a masterpiece.

Hi Ron. I always look forward to the juncos appearing in winter. This is a beautifully clear shot, with extremely clear colors, which is not easy to get with these dark little birds. Very well done!

Nice start to 2015!
