May 27th, while taking a rather long leisurely walk with a friend, I
spotted a male DARK-EYED JUNCO sitting on the top of a pine in the
Leisure Time RV Park off Highway 20 near Fort Bragg. As we descended the
trails, down to a logging road, we spotted a pair of DARK-EYED JUNCOES,
male and female, flitting around searching frantically for insects.
Has anyone heard of Dark-eyed Juncoes nesting so close to the coast? I
suspect that they were nesting since they were hunting insects together
and were not eating them, but gathering them in their bills. . .
