Late-Autumn Backyard Nature in New Jersey: Birds

A flock of tiny Dark-eyed Slate-colored Juncos stopped by to work the debris left over after mowing my wildflower garden. I hope they leave some seeds for next years wildflowers. The images were taken through a double-paned glass window which didn’t help the white-balance or focus.
