Dark-Eyed Junco (Male)

Dark-Eyed Junco (Male)
This bird is common across much of temperate North America and in summer ranges far into the Arctic. Their breeding habitat is coniferous or mixed forest areas throughout North America. In otherwise optimal conditions they also utilize other habitat, but at the southern margin of its range it can only persist in its favorite habitat. Northern birds migrate further south, arriving in their winter quarters between mid-September and November and leaving to breed from mid-March onwards, with almost all gone by the end of April or so. Many populations are permanent residents or altitudinal migrants, while in cold years birds may choose to stay in the winter range and breed there. In winter, juncos are familiar in and around towns, and in many places are the most common birds at feeders. These birds forage on the ground. In winter, they often forage in flocks that may contain several subspecies. They mainly eat insects and seeds. Taken through my front-door window. Cropped only; otherwise untouched.

Such a sweet and gentle bird...usually.
Once my daughter camped for a week on the edge of our mountain meadow. When we were ready to leave she rolled up her tent, and a nest was revealed right behind it in the grass. On it was a female junco who had HAD it. Any move we made toward her brought the bird off her nest in attack mode. Never saw that before.
Needless to say, we tiptoed away, very very quietly.
