I was fortunate to acquire this shot at eye level by getting horizontal in the snow and waiting for the birds to return. I held my lens steady and this junco was the first to arrive within my viewing range, looking for ground seed. The junco found a few ground seeds buried, thus the frosty face. During the winters the juncos are everywhere and I am sure to regularly throw seed on the ground near the feeding stations, especially during the few snowfalls we have each year. Normally the juncos are on the bland side, in terms of color, but I was delighted to see the pink of this bird’s beak show up brilliantly in the photo.

His beak looks iridescent! Great shot Linda!
I’ve always loved Junkos. I used get a lot of them on Avalon Farm. Such sweet little birds. Beautiful shot!
Very well done!
