I put a picture of this bird early and was told it was a Junco. But when I looked up info on a Junco the pictures I found did not look like the bird in my photo. What do you think?

Hi Sandy. I am sure your bird is not a Junco. Juncos have a thicker beak. I think it may be a type of warbler. So check your book for warblers in your area.
