When the juncos hang around, it can only mean one thing. Winter isn’t over yet!
I’ve been tracking their migration in my calendar since late March to see when they leave in spring. Today they were at my feeders in great numbers. My guess is that they are gathering and eating food to withstand our latest round of snow. Yes, I said snow.
It’s late April and the weather experts are predicting that we will receive from 3-9 inches of the wet, slushy stuff overnight. The amount greatly depends on the path the storm takes.
Although they are beautiful, I anxiously await their departure!
