Steve’s Bird Of The Day #19.

Hello everyone! I’m a bit late today getting this out, but here we are with another of our friendly birds. This is a northern junco, also referred to as the dark-eyed junco. They are a member of the sparrow family and very friendly, often they will come hopping around your feet if you are sitting outside. And with a little patience they can be coaxed onto your hand. During spring and fall migration they are always with other sparrows. In this area they are the first sparrow to arrive in spring, anywhere from late March to late April depending on how early the spring. Usually they will be here by early April however. And they are the last to leave in the fall. They breed right across Canada, into the Arctic and in Alaska. Also south in the mountains, west and east. Females a bit lighter in color than males. Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. He looks like a happy little bird, ready for spring. Speaking of spring, you’re going to be jealous. Our temps today were 37 F in the morning and 67 F this afternoon. The trees are still bare, which seems strange with this warmer weather, but I guess nature has to catch up. πŸŒžπŸŒΊβ˜•οΈβ˜•οΈ
