Dark Eyed Junco
In the Autumn, these birds are quite commonly found foraging on the ground along the river
There are several 'races' of these birds
Pleasant little birds!
Always on the move, they make a formidable subject to photograph
This was an exception... he posed for me!

Sometimes when photographing we are lucky and have a natural reflection to fill the shadows
As with the Cedar Waxwings, we see these birds amongst the Russian Olive fruit
