Looks some kind of Junco to me. Shot here in California, using 10D and 100-400L. There wasa small group of these feeding on the ground. All these shots are heavy crops from originals.

Looks like one to me, I had my lens on a few of these in the fall. Now you've got them and I'm sitting high and dry on a mound of snow.

Nice shot, love the background colors in the first one. For some reason I just like this bird, it looks kinda fuzzy or something.

It does look somewhat like our eastern "dark eyed Junco".... Nice close up shots with lots of detail... Well done....

I think it is the Oregon Junco.

I agree with Bobbyz, its an Oregon dark eyed junco.

Nicely captured.

Very nice, Bobby. I've got these in my backyard every day all day. I like them and they are pleasant to observe and also very common.
