Slate-colored juncos are also known as snow birds. They have a beautiful flashing white tail when they fly and pretty yellow beak. They prowl around on the ground under my feeder on a daily basis, pushing around under the leaves. There are usually 4-5 juncos visiting at the same time.
This morning we had a light dusting of snow, the first of any significance (if you can call it that) since the October snowstorm. This little guy was sampling the stale potato bread I threw in the yard.
