Dark-eyed junco

Junco hyemalis


Small dark back and head, white belly and chest small pale beak


"Dark-eyed Juncos breed in coniferous or mixed-coniferous forests across Canada, the western U.S., and in the Appalachians. During winter you’ll find them in open woodlands, fields, parks, roadsides, and backyards." (Cornell lab of ornithology)


they have just started arriving or at least we have just started hearing their call... we call them the electric bird because it sounds a bit like the buzzing of an electric wire.
