Dark-eyed Junco

Junco5842A few days ago we looked at a bird that actually migrates TO the midwest for winter, the White-throated Sparrow. Well here’s another sparrow just crazy enough, or maybe lazy enough to spend winters here, the Dark-eyed Junco. It seems to me that whenever this bird arrives in the fall, winter is never far behind. Case in point: Last week when this little dude showed up it was sixty degrees, the next day… 25 degrees! Dang juncos!!! And a day after that there were a dozen juncos at my feeder. That can’t be good.
