Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon Junco at Grant Park in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on February 8, 2017

Making a stop today at Grant Park in Milwaukee County a Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon Junco made a brief appearance at the feeder there. The junco was present for about 30 seconds and then it left. I hung around for about 20 minutes and it did not reappear. The feeder was empty but there were birds around finding things to eat. I photographed a Dark-eyed Junco, Oregon Junco at the same location on December 15, 2016. This image was taken on February 8, 2017.

    Nice photos, Jim! We’re waiting for the juncos to arrive here in the north woods.

    Great photos Jim!! We have never seen this Junco in our yard.

    Today, however, we did have two Screech Owls simultaneously (one in each nest box)! That was exciting!!
