Dark-eyed Junco, juvenile

Junco hyernalis

Description:

Pinkish beak, like the adult, dark eyes and a faint hood that will darken as adult plumage comes in. Streaked throat, pinkish legs and feet.

Habitat:

Its always interesting for me to find juvenile birds of species that winter in my garden! only one year in the 40 years I have lived in Albion under the Trees have the Dark-eyed Juncos successfully nested here in the Fraser Valley. But they nest not far away at slightly higher elevations. This one was found in the subalpine on Blackwall Peak in Manning Provincial Park, BC. in the northern Cascade mountain range. He/she just kept watching me!
