Dark-eyed Junco

We saw this dark-eyed junco yesterday in our backyard.  He was playing in the rain.  There are a few different varieties of dark-eyed juncos.  This one is a slate-colored dark-eyed junco, which is the only kind of junco found in Wisconsin.  Juncos are a kind of American sparrow.

You can here a recording of the dark-eyed junco’s song from the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center by clicking here:
