Like yesterday’s Song Sparrows, many Dark-eyed Juncos hang around the area over the winter and are commonly seen at feeders. They also set up territories and begin singing early in the spring. They breed in forests dominated by conifers but are also seen in mixed woods. I have had them singing in my back yard in the past few weeks, but I was able to photograph this male singing in Summerhill State Forest last week. I have enjoyed photographing these sparrows both this spring and last fall because we don’t get them in central Florida.
