Batman, The Dark Feathers

Front View of Dark Feathers Bird
My neighbor, the renter, moved out last month and left a horrible mess in the yard. The owner had to hire a landscape company to fix up around his home; so after the workers left, I saw a flock of these dark feather birds on my driveway. They looked like Batman to me through my window for some reasons, and I have never seen them before either.

Side View
At first glance, this bird looked like sparrow, but when I saw the black outfit with black mask on its face, I know it was not. When it flapped the wings, it looked just like Batman, in a smaller portion :-) This flock of bird only appeared on that day, and now gone.

Back View of Dark Feathers
Do you know what it is? Or is it just a sparrow and I dream of Batman? Not to worry, I am still sane, for now that is! Nature always amazes me and has me wonder...Enjoy your weekend!

You have not seen it before because it is Batman.

It is active only at night.

Isn't this a dark-eyed junco? Not sure. They are so pretty in the snow, I remember.

Being able to take photos of a bird is a blessing. Keep your heart light.

So would I, Judy!
I'm glad my neighbor hired them to clean up and chopped down some tree that took over my driveway.

Like Marie, I think this is a Junco.
But... where's Robin???

I would agree with Marie, I think it's a dark-eyed junco. We only get them at my feeders during the winter time. Lovely little bird and your photos are great.

It is a Dark-eyed Junco. They breed in Canada and then migrate to southerly throughout the rest of North America for the winter months.
Delightful little birds.

I do not know what kind of bird, so it may be, and Batman. A charming little bird. Yours.
