Grey-headed Junco

Grey-headed Junco, Bandolier National Monument, New Mexico

The Juncos are under our feeders most days here in southern Maine, but they are all Slate-colored Juncos. Of course they are all, according to the experts, Dark-eyed Juncos, but the DeJ has at least 5 recognizable plumage variations across the country. When we lived in New Mexico, on a good day in the winter, we could get 3 of them at our feeders. This is the Grey-headed variety which I found at Bandolier National Monument on a November visit to New Mexico. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode. 1/250th @ f4 @ ISO 100. -.3 EV. Processed in Polarr.
