Aww, just saw a dark-eyed junco at my feeder! I know they're everywhere, but that's the first time I've seen them visiting my feeder set-up. ^^
My feeder life list is currently:
- House sparrows
- House finches
- Anna's hummingbirds
- Red-breasted nuthatches
- Dark-eyed juncos
- Downy woodpeckers
- Northern flickers
TIL there are different varieties of dark-eyed juncos! We get a lot of the oregon variety around here, but I think the ones I saw today were a sub-species called "cismontanus". ^^
My mum also gets a lot of the "slate-coloured" variety out where she is in the interior.
