Snow Bird

  A Dark-eyed Junco. 
I only see these guys in late fall/winter and see them much more when there is snow falling. Here is a link for more info and to hear their typical voice:

My favorite weather is bird-chirping weather

There are dozens in my yard right now! And I can't wait to photograph the Cardinal and the Bluejay when it starts snowing later this morning :)

Oh, I had SO much fun photographing them and the other birdies in the snow yesterday! He's beautiful Kerri!

Great shot! We have those year round in our area -- we don't see them as much in the summer as we do in the fall and winter when they visit the feeders.

Ah, isn't he a cute little thing. Terrific shot.

He's beautiful, but it's too bad that you have to have the snow to see him! ^_^ Oh well, snow can be beautiful too...I guess. :-)

Angie Willis said...

Fabulous. I've been wondering what a Junco looked like and now I know. Wonderful colouring.

Just began to snow here in Maryland and already the juncoes are out! Lovely capture on this beautiful little winter visitor, Kerri!

I had your two blogs confused.

Anyway, the little Dark-eyed Junco is precious!

Thank you for sharing!

We seem to have a flock of these living on our land, in dense brush. They come to the feeder as a flock and then go back to their comfy home. Hope you are keeping warm these days.

He may be a plain bird,but I think he is beautiful and their cheery chirps brighten a cold day.

Isn't it lovely to watch birds in the midst of snowfall?
Maybe not so much fun for them, but lovely for us.
