ALSO CALLED A SNOWBIRD:
You may see Dark-eyed Juncos in the summer, but come fall, many more — those that have been nesting in the mountains or farther north — arrive to spend the winter. These juncos often visit birdfeeders for winter feasting.
WE WILL SEE THIS LITTLE GUY AROUND OUR FEEDERS THIS WINTER. WEIGHS AS MUCH AS 4 PENNIES.
DON'T GET IT MIXED UP WITH THE HOUSE FINCH.
