Yes you can change it. Follow the below steps
1.Using Photoshop or any free favicon website, create a new favicon.ico image . Or simply  scale any image you have to 16 X 16 pixels and then save it as an .ico file.
2.Upload the favicon icon file you just created to your default template's directory
joomla/templates/templatename/
3. using your FTP program rename your .ico file to "favicon.ico". The filename has to be in lowercase and spelled like this favicon.ico
