    This Junco has a Witch Hazel tree for a backdrop. Both managed to survive the short snow session that we had.

    Another excellent close up Kildale!! We don't have any finches here that look quite like your Junco.

    They say it is classed with the American Sparrows, There are a few different Junco's, this is the Gray Slated Junco.

    That's why I like your posts so much Kildale - I get to see, and learn about, birds that you have over there that we don't get here in Scotland.
