Dark-eyed Junco
Junco hyemalis
Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) is an extremely variable species which occurs across all of the U.S. and Canada. There are a number of "forms" or subspecies, most of which may be distinguished in the field. Some individuals, however, seem to be a combination of several of these forms and an accurate identification beyond species level is a challenge. Dark-eyed Juncos breed across much of Canada, the New England area, and the western United States and winter across the remainder of the country. The birds in the next 4 images were near the town of Lincoln, Lincoln Co., New Mexico, in November, 2005. The images were shot with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and EF 500mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender. The first 3 shots show "Oregon/Pink-sided Juncos".
The bird shown here is the "Gray-headed" race of Dark-eyed Junco.
The "Oregon/Pink-sided" Junco shown here was at Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Randall Co., Texas, in December, 2005. This image was taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and EF 600mm F/4 L IS lens and 1.4X extender.
Thee next 5 images were also at Palo Duro Canyon.
The next 4 shots were taken at Buffalo Gap, Taylor Co., Texas, in December, 2005. The bottom two shots appear to be the "Slate-colored" race, most common in the eastern U.S.
The next 6 shots show the "Gray-headed" race of Dark-eyed Junco. The first 2 shots show an adult and the bottom 4 shots show juvenile birds. These 6 shots were taken in Breckenridge, Summit Co., Colorado, in July, 2008, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 500mm F/4 L IS lens and 1.4X extender.
The next 4 shots show juvenile Dark-eyed Juncos, also in Breckenridge, Colorado, in July, 2008.
The Dark-eyed Junco in the next two shots shown here was in Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Randall Co., Texas, in January, 2009. These images were taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 800mm F/5.6 L IS lens and 1.4X extender.
