Slate-colored Junco (Junco hyemalis) is in the family Fringillidae.
The junco is a common spectacle during the winter months, frequenting the feeder in search of small seeds or dried berries. They are often found in flocks with other juncos (the Oregon and the gray-headed).
These birds are delightful to watch when the snow is falling outside and you have a good view of the bird feeder from the cozy indoors. The flit about, making small chirping noises, never seeming to be bothered by the cold weather or snowy conditions.
