A couple of weeks ago I had written a post in reference to a customer question on whether or not I had seen or heard whether or not dark-eyed juncos were back.
Well, yesterday morning I finally saw one under the feeder. And there clearly had to have been more, since most of the white millet the chickadees and other won’t eat, was pretty well cleaned up. And this morning, I saw at least 4.
Another customer who visited the store yesterday came in and reported juncos as well. A sure sign that Spring is right around the corner.
Also had a new sighting for myself today. We had a female cardinal at the feeder. I’ve written about the several males we’ve had around, but today was the first time I’ve seen a female.
A great bird watching morning.
