Unfortunately, there are way too many juncos for me to name them all and keep them all straight - thus, they are "the Juncos." Since they're ground feeder birds, they're the most commonly stalked birds with Doves being a close second. The juncos, however, are much faster at getting out of the way than the doves are so they tend to make it.
Obviously this picture is showing the junco in the tree, but that's only because the ground picture was a little fuzzy. I'm surprised he went to the tree - the normal first line of defense is the dead/dying red tip photinia plants along the neighbor's house.
