The Yellow-eyed Junco (Junco phaeonotus) is a species of junco, small American sparrows that are most often found in the mountains of southern Arizona and New Mexico.  — Image by kenne

Like most juncos, these little birds seem to enjoy jumping from limb to limb in the pine trees of Mt. Lemmon, occasionally darting to the ground. As a result, this bird can be difficult to photograph in the wild.

If you look closely at this birds legs, you will see several bands — must be a popular bird for scientific study.
