Dark-eyed Junco

The Dark-eyed Junco, Junco hyemalis, is our most common bird in wintertime.  Also known as the snowbird, these little fellows are often seen in large numbers at the feeders.  The male is a contrasty slate gray and white and the female has more subdued coloring, with brown on the wings and back.
