  1. Grants Pass Or.

    I haven't had Juncos in my yard in months. This guy showed up and I had to do research.

    Has junco movements and some markings. The head isn't all dark and chest has streaks. Has white tail feathers

    I have come to the conclusion it is a Juvenile Dark-eyed Junco and he hasn't filled out regular feathers yet.

    Any thoughts appreciated

    Saw this egg on the path through the trees and grass.

    I thought at first a Killdeer but I didn't see or hear any.

    It was in a little mud pile that had dirt scooped out. Does that sound right? Smaller than a golf ball.

    Any help appreciated. I left it there on the ground. When we came back that way still no parent.

  3. Thanks all,

    Connor Cochrane,

    I understand what you're saying.  I had one last year in the low bushes along the irrigation ditch. My house is right along the ditch and I get a lot of birds here. I didn't think a Pacific Wren would be on a fence but I've seen some unusual things since I've moved here. (rural Grants Pass Or.) I use to live in the city (Portland area) and would have to go out on nature walks to see a lot of the birds I have in my side yard. (my side yard is actually a little forest) I'm getting use to it.
