Dark Eyed Junco

I love the slate colored dark eyed juncos that visit me every day. A poofed-out junco hopping around can warm even the coldest of days. With their "hoppy" mannerisms, they always seem to be upbeat, even in dreary weather.

The dark eyed juncos spend most of the year up in Canada, and come down to the US only in the winter, earning them the nickname "snowbirds."

I love my little snowbirds, and not being a fan of winter, at least I've got their visits to look forward to.
