Dark-eyed Junco [excl. mutabilis]

Junco hyemalis [excl. mutabilis] (= Junco hyemalis) (Linnaeus, 1758)

The dark-eyed junco is a species of junco, a group of small, grayish New World sparrows. This bird is common across much of temperate North America and in summer ranges far into the Arctic. It is a very variable species, much like the related fox sparrow, and its systematics are still not completely untangled. Source: Wikipedia
