For the Birds~

January juncos (well, for the most part!). It is so much fun to see these little chirpy, cheeky creatures darting around the yard. We don't get partridges here, but this month we got juncos in our pear trees. Haven't seen many chickadees yet. Still hoping and waiting. Oregon, Dark-eyed juncos are a little different from ones in other parts of North America. Their colors tend to be broader, also. 

 NOT juncos, but they sit still for a camera! They also like the sunflower seed heads I put out the other day. It is about time, usually these heads rot and I end up tossing them.
 Jonathan took over my camera for a bit and caught this junco posing! He was near the window and since he is taller, he could see over the screen to photograph the feeder.
