Richard noted that the Juncos have arrived. Those little Birds all decked out in their Slate Gray Suits have been nesting in Canada and are now our Winter Companions. I smile when I think of the adventures those tiny wings have held.
We enjoyed Juncos in North Dakota and in our new home here in Northeast Missouri. They flit about the Bird Feeders, providing activity in our yard even on the coldest of days. Their presence suggests that Winter is poised for a long stay too and is not to be denied. http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/dark-eyed_junco/id
