Dark-eyed Junco

Junco hyemalis

Dark-eyed Juncos are common winter residents at Chert Hollow Farm. They typically arrive in October, and our last sightings before summer are typically in March or April, though we have seen one here as late as May 16.

Juncos are common visitors to our bird feeder, which is where Eric took this photo.
