Friday Bird Blogging: Dark-Eyed Junco

The dark-eyed junco is a northern bird which is much more common in Vermont once winter settles in. I may see them here and there throughout the Summer, but once we're into full on winter, their numbers increase dramatically.

This picture was taken right near our feeders this morning, shortly after I'd restocked them. I've been trying to get good junco pictures for quite some time now, and it's a sign of just how badly they need food on a day this bitterly cold that they were letting me get close enough to get this kind of shot.
