Dark-eyed Junco in Snow Storm

April 04, 2021

The Dark-eyed Junco is actually a sparrow and challenging to photograph due to its (you guessed it) dark eye. The eye is the most important feature of all critters human and otherwise and focusing on it is the key to all successful photographs. 

It is a year round resident in Nova Scotia and all Canadian provinces. It is primarily a Canadian bird born and almost all breed north of the American border, although some breed in Alaska.
