Junco Hunt

Friday, November 22nd, 2019
Dark-eyed Junco, East Millcreek, Salt Lake City, Utah, 22 November 2019.
Dark-eyed Junco.

Yesterday I thought I heard a little flock of juncos—but at the same time I heard (and saw) a flock of finches take flight. I couldn’t convince myself for sure that they were juncos I heard. Especially since I hadn’t seen any for a few days either on the mountain or in the neighborhood.

Toward the end of my hike with dog this lowery, nippy morning, I definitely heard juncos. And stalked ’em. And spotted ’em. And even managed a few photographs.
