The Juncos are here. They fill the trees and the ground.
The Juncos that frequent our yard are ground feeders, I have never seen them in the feeders. I have heard that they will visit feeders…perhaps they don’t like ours.
Chance and I were out after supper playing ball. When Chance got tired we settled down quiety to watch the birds.
One by one the Juncos came back.
They were pecking at something in between the garages.
They were visiting the mud puddle in the drive way, just for drinking…I didn’t see them bathing.
This one came close enogh for a close up. Some are a darker grey than others. I think that the darker ones are the males. They will stick around for awhile and then head north for their breeding grounds in Canada and Alaska.
Chance and I sat so long that a really dumb squirrel tried to sneak up on us.
One click of the camera and this fellow was gone.
It is that time of year where everything is brown or grey…with some occassional white stuff overnight that melts during the day. I am ready for March to be over…I think it will go out like a lamb.
