This Morning Outside

Dark-eyed Juncos go south for the winter. And what I love about them is that south is IOWA!

In eastern North America, they nest way up north (except for some in the Appalachian Mountains). And when winter comes, they scoot on down here to cheer me every day until spring comes. Pleasant, unassuming, and abundant, lightly chirping, they have a beauty that hides under a rock-grey exterior until someone takes a closer look.
