dark-eyed junco ~ 04/07/10 ~ at home


dark-eyed junco perched on coast Douglas fir
Junco hyemalis perched on Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesiiPinaceae

I've been trying to capture one of these on camera since last fall. I believe this is the Oregon form. They love the pine next to our balcony (I'll ID this tree later) and appear to feed on it. They make a mess of my planters by tossing soil everywhere.

Ron, after noticing several nature blogs in my reader with "wordless Wednesday" posts, I searched for what it was all about. I like the idea. Thanks for visiting!

It's still in its infancy after its rebirth as an outdoor blog. I plan to post at least one every two weeks, but there will be at least one per month. Absobloodylutely!
