Dark-Eyed Junco - Slate-Colored

Emmett Hume
The slate-colored dark-eyed junco is the only variation commonly found in the east, ranging from the east coast to, but not in, the Rocky Mountain region. Slate-colored juncos can also be found throughout Canada and Alaska.

This bird is easily recognized by its solid gray head, neck, back and wings contrasting with a boldly white lower chest and abdomen. The bill is pale but may show a dark tip, and lighter gray females may show a faint brown wash over their back and wings.
