This is a rather cute little fellow that was hopping around on the walk, so I threw out some seed, and managed to get this shot. Now I know it is not a great shot as it was through the glass looking down. Best I candetermine is this might be a Dark Eyed Junco.

And this little fellow came along. I believe it is called a White Throated Sparrow.

Nice shots even if through the window. We have had two juncos so far this winter. The various sparrows are a month or more away from here.

I believe you are right on both the birds Jerry, very nice for through the window.
Happy, we have so many Juncos in the yard I have to clean their poop off things every day.

those are good shots through a window and I always wonder how those little birds survive when they are outside year round and temperatures dip to -30C or -35C?

Thanks everybody. Everytime I try to go out to get a better view, etc., they take off as soon as they seen any movement. And my cat doesn't help matters either. Thanks to those who helped me identify the junco. I did not think we had these at all, until I captured the shot and started looking it up. I sould have been keeping a list of the birds I have been able to identify.

Thanks again, Steve, Ted, Donna, Beth, Annie, and Emmanuel.
