Backyard Birds

How cool is that, two new birds I can include in my Backyard Birds list. Truth be told the Merlin wasn't actually in the yard, but I could see him from my yard and take his picture so I'm counting him as a Backyard Bird.


Dark-eyed Junco I think this one is the "Oregon Junco"





Juncos are one of my favorites too. They stay here all winter. I think they are so brave, cheerfully hopping about even on the snow looking for whatever blade of something comes up. I save the sunflower seeds to sprinkle out for them. The jays usually leave a few.

I don't remember seeing them last fall/winter but I wasn't a bird fanatic then. I'm amazed at how many sub-species there are.
