Another email had to do with Juncos. I've written before about my friend in Elgin, who tries to beat me every year playing...who will see the first Junco. She spotted 4 of them early this morning. Oh, dear, does that mean that winter is not far off? This "contest" has been fun for us for years...starting with her Mom. I always think of her when I see the first one. She always won back then. So many times, we are looking at the ground, trying to spot one feeding under the feeders....then before computers, rushing to the phone to tell our news.
Today promises to be another beautiful fall day. I'm going to get out and take some pictures before all this color leaves. Have a great day....have you seen a Junco yet?
