Nature Through My Lens




A Slate-coloured Junco, (Junco hyemalis) stands out from the Oregon Dark-eyed Junco, by it’s colour. But is in fact the same species.

A Fine Fall Morning


A Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) perched in the Salmon Berry bush in our garden. The birds planted it, so I guess they can sit in it!

Hold that Pose


Here it is. The first camera packing birdie. Trying for a good shot! In actual fact, a Dark-eyed Junco landing on the saucer feeder while the Pine Siskin throws up it’s wings in protest of the visitor.

Crazy Doo


A Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) in the bushes taking a break from trying to feed in the pouring rain. There are six subspecies of Junco, this one in an Oregon.
I love the hairdo this bird has! Wet feathers, what can one do!

An Icy Morning

Junco in the Snow


A Dark-eyed Junco in the snow covering a bush in our backyard.  I’m getting lots of these little guys lately, but haven’t been out and about very much due to the weather and I still love all these little guys!
