Dark-eyed Junco (Oregon)

Junco hyemalis

Description:

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.

Habitat:

oaks

We have the Slate-colored variety in Ohio, and although it is a neat little bird, I really do like the Oregon variety better. It is a much prettier bird.
