Jim's sargeant bird

This bird looks very much to me like a junco- they are a two-toned bird, dark grey on top lighter, almost white on the bottom. The females are also two-toned, but lighter coloured than the males. I have about 30 of these little guys grazing my ground right now!

Junco

I belive this is a type of junco. I get dark-eyed juncos, and that may be what you have. If you search the web, you might figure out which type it is.

Junco?
by: Judy-Seattle

You got good pics of your sargent bird. My first thought was that it somewhat resembles out Oregon Junco. However, you live in MA. So could your friend be a Slate-colored Junco? They are suppose to be abundant from coast to coast. The angled up tail seems odd. Could he be trying to court a mate?
