Spotting

Description:

I am not sure what these little guys are, I just saw a lot of them in a short tree near a small valley. They are small birds but there seemed to be at least 10 of them hiding in the tree

Thanks Malcolm. Trying to do things too fast. I appreciate the correction.

I believe the correct scientific name should be "Junco hyemalis mearnsi" and no as your suggestion which is the Common name.

Hi mrnorth000. I believe your bird is a Dark-eyed Junco. There are many color variations. This would be consistent with the Oregon Dark-eyed Junco which is found in the Rockies and Western Great Plains. It is likely a female. They are frequently seen in groups feeding on the ground.
