Around the cluck!

  1. Ha! I was just looking at a few of them earlier picking seeds off the ground under my feeder. Little ground scratchers! I nick named them Junkies. Nice picture!

  4. What a great picture, I am jealous. 🙂 There are a lot of these little beauties at my feeders this year and I have tried and tried to get good shots of them, but they don’t stay still long enough. You sure did good capturing a good shot. Aren’t they the cutest little birds? I love to watch them skitter along looking for seed on the ground…if they would just be still a few seconds so I could get a good picture. Thanks, for sharing this picture…love it. Hugs

    • Thank you very much, they are super adorable. It took me just about 15min of standing still with out any movements to get this shot. They are super quick and they get spooked really easily. Thank you again for enjoying my work. Happy Blogging! 🙂

      • Thank you for sharing your pictures they are great.

  5. Love the Juncos – this is a lovely photograph of them (they’re hard to photograph against the snow!)
    Also just want to say although I’m relatively new to your blog I’m loving how you combine the photographs with a joke 🙂
