I recently looked out to my backyard thru the window and saw a different looking bird. I rushed to my computer to write in the description and up popped the name Dark-Eyed Junco. From looking at pictures, I know I'm seeing Dark-eyed junco and gosh are they ever cute!
There not loud or rowdy like many of the other birds. They almost appear shy as they hop around my yard looking for fallen seeds and anything else they can find. I've seen 3-4 at once before and they don't seem to be frightened easily as the dog was walking around the backyard and they didn't even move.
