Junco’s are Still Hanging Around..

Dark-eyed Junco

 

It’s getting closer each day for these Dark-eyed Juncos to be heading North for the summer. They will be leaving any day now and then when they return in the fall, I can expect the cold and snow shortly after. The last few days I’ve been just seeing maybe one or two eating a few scattered seeds under the feeders. Our weather has turned cold, gray, and rainy and is to continue all week long. I’m not sure I’ll be able to see exactly when these guys leave our yard for the summer season, but I will still continue to watch my birds from indoors. I guess I shouldn’t complain, because once the skies break into sunshine we will have green buds breaking out in the trees and bushes and the grass will be very green. I will miss, however, sitting on the patio and getting close ups of all the birds that come into the pond and birdbaths. Well, Happy Birding Everyone!

    Love your composition with this cutie! Since you mentioned he’s getting ready to migrate, it fits his ‘look’ as if he’s pondering exactly that. 🙂

      I actually thought they’d left our area as I hadn’t spotted one in a couple of days, but who popped up under the feeder late this afternoon but one lone Junco. It won’t be long now though. Thanks for your nice words Donna.
