Dark-eyed Junco portrait

This Dark-eyed Junco visited me earlier in the week.  It had been feeding off the ground in our back yard from food spilled by our bird feeder.  I was surprised how unafraid it was.  So naturally I went to get the camera and snap a shot of this friendly little one.  I was able to get within a couple of feet or so with my zoom lens.

The Dark-eyed Junco is a genus of the American sparrows. Though these birds winters in much of the United States many enjoy the summer months in northern Canada and Alaska.
