Hi, Linda. I have had a Dark-eyed Junco for the past two years who sits
either in a treetop or on the power line running in front of my house,
trilling his little heart out. Just single note, repeated trills. Last
year it took me a long time to finally find where the song was coming from,
and I used my zoom lens to see him instead of my binoculars because he was
so far away. I was so surprised when I looked at the photo and saw it was
a Junco! Now, and I don't know of course if it 's the same bird, one sits
either in the tree behind my house, or on the power lines in front, and
trills nearly every day. It's lovely.
