Finally a Junco pays a visit

I used to get a lot of dark-eyed juncos at my feeders, then one year they stopped coming, or at least it seemed that way — but if they were there, I didn’t see them.

I set up the birdcam again — for how long? Who knows. Until my laptop is moved to a different room perhaps — but yesterday I had it going and a junco stopped by for a bit of seed.

I’ve got a brick of birdseed (supposedly for woodpeckers, but I’ve only had one woodpecker eating from it so far) set up on the air conditioner unit that is attached to the wall in my attic office. I’ve got a camera attached to my laptop and pointing out the window at the seed.

Yesterday I had the following visit the feeder:

  • Northern Cardinal
  • Red-bellied Woodpecker
  • White-breasted nuthatch
  • Carolina Chickadee
  • Tufted Titmouse
  • Carolina Wren
  • Dark-eyed junco

Here’s the woodpecker I mentioned
