I have the little junco too , they are beautiful
Robins eat protein....worms and insects and generally from the ground. I have never seen one at a feeder. But......just because I haven't seen one doesn't mean they don't. I heard the painted buntings won't come to a feeder, but I have had them on mine.
These little boogers leap from the taller tree branches down to the feeder, the pole is greased and the feeder shut but they can open it , sometimes they get all the way inside, curl up and stay for a hour or so stuffing their jaws
