#19 Dark-eyed Junco

Junco hyemalis
IUCN Redlist: Least Concern
Location: Victoria, BC, Canada
Time: 1145 PDT April 22 2011

The dark-eyed junco is a highly variable species, with several subspecies in about 6 groups. This individual is from the Oregon junco subspecies group, easily recognised by the distinct black hood. The infinite well of wisdom that is Wikipedia suggests that it may in the future be recognised as a distinct species.
