The Juncos were all over the garden plot this afternoon. Last night we went to bed listening to the rainfall, and this morning we woke up to a dusting of snow on the ground. However, by the afternoon it was melting and dripping off the roofs. That's when these lively, little birds came out to play or rather to forage for morsels* in and around the garden.
*Juncos eat mainly grass seeds and also insects.
