2015 April Juncos

GSB_Canada-4128-20150416_SquamishA flock of Dark-eyed Junco’s (Junco hyemalis) spent a few days in our backyard last week, but seem to have moved on. According to Peterson’s Field Guide Junco’s were divided into four main species (Oregon Junco, Gray-headed Junco, Slate-coloured Junco and White-winged Junco), but recently there has been a lot of inter-breeding and hybridization making it hard to distinguish between the different sub-species. I was trying to catch them flying, but ended up with lots of blurry shots of half birds, hence the shots of them perched.
