More snow overnight last night. And this morning there were jucos.

Before this morning, I hadn’t seen a junco for a few days—after seeing many nearly every day for a good long while. Well, today they returned. Both up the trails and in the neighborhood. Just living up to their nickname of “snowbird.”
