Juncos a joy

Photos by BarrytheBirder

Winter doesn't begin for another month, but we have already had some snow and cold temperatures here in southern Ontario.   But the Dark-eyed Juncos have been here for weeks already and that makes everything alright.   While I am always glad to see these pretty little birds, I have to remind myself to listen for their song.   My Audubon field guide describes their voice as a "Trill like a Chipping Sparrow but slower with a more musical, tinkling quality...also a soft twittering".   Indeed one of winter's pretty birds and pretty sounds.

Please comment if you wish.
