The instructor identified the bird singing as a Dark-eyed Junco. This caught my attention since I only see these birds in winter and expect them to be breeding in Canada during the spring and summer months. Then I remembered that our group was in a Red Spruce forest on a mountain top at nearly 3000 feet. Hearing the Junco's song and seeing one in late spring was a first for me.
