~Dark-eyed Junco – Pink-sided.
The Dark-eyed Junco is a medium-sized sparrow with a rounded head, a short, stout bill and a fairly long, conspicuous tail.
Dark-eyed Juncos are birds of the ground. They hop around the bases of trees and shrubs in forests or venture out onto lawns looking for fallen seeds. You’ll often hear their high chip notes, given almost absent-mindedly while foraging, or intensifying as they take short, low flights through cover.
Dark-eyed Juncos breed in coniferous or mixed-coniferous forests across Canada, the western U.S., and in the Appalachians. During winter you’ll find them in open woodlands, fields, parks, roadsides, and backyards.

Sheila! A Bunny! How cute. Little hard to forage on grass when it’s covered with snow! Toss out a carrot/salad greens? You’ll make a permanent friend. The bunnies in Tucson would eat on the 25 lb seed block I put out in the yard. Thanks for sharing! k
