Mystery Birds

I thought this was a nuthatch, but some quick research showed that it's a Tufted Titmouse. It's fairly shy, which is why I don't have a good shot of it.



I'm not sure what this other bird is. Five of them showed up together today. They keep fighting with the sparrows. From some angles, they look a little like the sparrows, but they are definitely something different.

They are called Dark Eyed Juncos. Or Slate colored Juncos. =)
