While the Dark-eyed Junco has a year-round range in southern Ontario, I haven’t seen one since April. This slate-coloured variation has breeding grounds further north that stretch to the northern Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Alaska (iBird Pro)
This bird preferred to scrounge beneath the bird feeder rather than on the feeder itself.
As with other ground feeders, this bird spent a lot of time scratching between the pine needles, looking for seeds that had fallen.
