On our trip to British Columbia in November 2011 we spotted some different birds than we see here in Ontario. The dark eyed, or Oregon juncos out there are just a bit different from the slate coloured juncos we see at home.
These cute little sparrow like birds were in a large flock around the garden at our daughter’s home.
They find their food mainly on the ground but will go into the feeders.
They are common residents around that part of Canada. Over winter they will venture into other areas.
The colouring on these juncos is just a bit different to the slate coloured juncos. They seemed to have more variety of colour, while ours are just gray and white (at least in the winter when we see them)
