Artist's Description

Photo shot in my backyard in Virginia Beach on Dec 26, 2010, during our “Blizzard”. We received a whopping 14 inches in 24 hours that is a huge record in this area.
This little Dark-eyed Junco (Slate colored) would flutter about for a few seconds before stopping to get some suet.
I’m not sure what it is about this little bird but he is one of my winter favorites. I think it is a combination of his Black/White coloring and his little pinkish colored beak.

Camera used was PowerShot SX20 IS

Dark-eyed Juncos are neat, flashy little sparrows that flit about forest floors of the western mountains and Canada, then flood the rest of North America for winter. They’re easy to recognize by their crisp (though extremely variable) markings and the bright white tail feathers they habitually flash in flight. One of the most abundant forest birds of North America, you’ll see juncos on woodland walks as well as in flocks at your feeders or on the ground beneath them.
