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?

My juncos here in the Pacific Northwest have a black hood nearly down to their wings. Females are less vivid. They are gutsy and adorable. My field guide to birds in my region also does not match the birds exactly.

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.
