Dark-Eyed Junco, actually an Eastern Phoebe

I’m guessing that one of the birds that stopped by several times tonight is a Dark-Eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis). It doesn’t exactly fit the description and photos I’ve been looking at. If you can provide any input I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks to Caroline’s help, Eastern Phoebe (Sayornis phoebe) is the bird I saw! (Updated June 21, 2006)

I think this Robin looks good on the top of my clothes line!


The same Robin feeding on the ground.


The Northern Cardinal posed in several places tonight:


Here he is getting ready to fly to the next position:


Each position was held for a very short time! So again with the fuzzy photos!

    I think your junco might be a phoebe. Juncos very sharp contrast white breast against gray back and bill shape more like that of a white-crowned sparrow and is light colored.
