Juncos are here for the winter months, and migrate north for the spring to fall seasons. Usually, quite an active species, but at times like all birds, have a period of rest, as this one was doing.

Nice fluffed up roundish shape, common when it is cold. Nice image, Paul.

Lovely fluff ball Paul. The habitat and the blocks of warm colour gel well for a well framed image. Nicely done.
Make your life spectacular!

Interesting perch for this fluffer, and the colorful background adds a lot.

Beautiful image of this little fluffball in the snow, Paul! It really looks cold, the detail is lovely and the background colours just add a really nice touch to the frame.

Quite puffed-up, makes me wonder what the temperature was.

Thanks for viewing my image, Axel.  It was taken a few weeks ago, and if I recall it was in the mid 20's F.  Colder tonight near 0 F. - where is the global warming !
