In addition to lighthouses, I have taken many photos of birds at home and on my travels. Thought I would share them as I have my lighthouse pictures. Hope you enjoy. Cheers, Neal

Dark Eyed Junco
The Dark Eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) is a common small sparrow found throughout North America. They breed mostly in Canada and winter in the U.S. and as far south as Northern Mexico. In some areas of South West Canada and the Western U.S. they are year round inhabitants. The Dark Eyed Junco is observed mostly on the ground at the base of trees and in bushes, or under bird feeders.
Dark Eyed Juncos are mainly grey and brown with a white underbelly. Some have noticeably darker heads and those are sometimes known as Oregon Juncos. Photos taken in Abbotsford, B.C. in October 2013.
