Black Finch??

I am a casual bird lover and not sure how to identify it. I am not sure if this is a black finch or what cus I am unable to really find much info on it except this picture. But this picture is exact to what has shown up yesterday and today, There are 4 of these currently feeding.

Since I can't figure out the markup to post the poicture here is the link.

I think it might be a Dark-eyed Junco.

No problem - they used to be rare but regular visitors over here but they have been few on the ground in recent years - so if you have 4 perhaps you could send one to my feeder in the UK!

Looks like a male Slate-colored of the "Canadian Rocky Mountain intergrade population?
