Dark Eyed Junco

Well I have things back up and running again. What a hassle. The set up software that came with the new router was not working properly and it was not until I found the default IP address in the documentation that I was able to connect up to the router and set it up. Fortunately I am Cisco certified and had the config from my old router so setting things up manually was pretty simple.
While we were in Yellowstone we spotted a bird that we are pretty familiar with back home except it looked a little bit different. The dark-eyed junco six different populations across North America that all look similar but have slight differences.
The first bird pictured is the one that we photographed in Yellowstone. I believe that this is the Oregon variety of the dark-eyed junco. The Oregon variety can be found in the western parts of the US and Canada. Birds that nest up in Canada usually winter in the western US including Wyoming and Montana, where Yellowstone is located. The second bird pictured was photographed at White Water State Park, located in southern Minnesota, in February. This is the slate-colored dark-eyed junco that can be found through out most of the US during the winter. This is the type of junco that we see around southern Minnesota in the winter.

The little juncos are my tiny :warriors of winter: here in upstate, NY...
I always look at them and feel I can get through the coldest of days... knowing that they do!
Very interesting seeing the other colors juncos "wear."
Glad you're back online!

A cute little bird, I have seen these but didn't know what they were. Thanks for the information as well as the lovely photos.

We have two distinct types here in Ohio or they come or pass through here but most stay the winter months. And they have very dark heads so dark the eye is hard to catch just right to photograph.
