Dark-eyed junco

Juncos are one of the few birds that leap forward with both feet and then scrape backwards, again with both feet, to uncover the seeds that make up 75% of their diet in the summer and almost 100% in the winter.

Just look at the snow flying behind him!

Juncos are usually ground feeders -- but they've learned to perch at the nyjer seed feeder.
