Dark-eyed Junco

A year-round SoCal resident that is not seen frequently, thus a “nice catch.” The Junco likes staying in or near the bushes and beneath trees where they can scratch around for things to eat. They won’t land on your feeder, but will gladly hang out underneath it. The kind of “little brown bird” you really need binoculars to pick out of the crowd — and you’ll be glad you did.
