Nature of the Month – Dark Eyed Junco
This sparrow relative was missing from our backyards all spring and summer. When our summer nesters leave, these “snowbirds” come back to us. They usually are found in small flocks eating seeds on the ground. When they fly, you will notice white outer tail feathers. Their call, which we don’t hear much until spring, sounds like a ringing phone!
