This little fellow showed up at our feeder last fall. We immediately noticed him because he had the odd white feather on his dark head. By the end of the season, the white feathers had multiplied and extended to the odd patch on his wings. He was so different from the other Juncos that we were sure he would be picked off by predators over the summer. You can imagine our surprise when he showed up this fall with even more white feathers – he now looks more like a canary than the Junco he is – and what a scrapper!
