Manhattan. Dark-eyed Junco at feeders.
The Junco is one of the most common birds at feeders, throughout North America. 60% of the species' population breeds in the huge swath of boreal forests stretching from Newfoundland to Alaska, and as far north as the tree line in the Arctic Circle. But even this commonly found bird is in decline, most likely due to atmospheric pollution and the widespread use of pesticides.
