Jane,

I was just listening to that on my Petererson series "Birding by Ear" CD 
and the Junco's song is desccribed as being a "bell-like" trill vs. the 
Chipping Sparrow's which is a drier sound.  I would highly recommend this 
CD.  Also the Cornel Lab of Ornithology's Macaulay Library has a great web 
site where you can search for and listen to bird calls.  Here it is:
