Monday Nature Mystery
We are pleased to announce the winner of our Monday Nature Mystery, James Chen! Please email us your snail mail address and preference for a hat or tote bag to: [email protected] (mailto:[email protected]?subject=Monday%20Nature%20Mystery%20Winner!)
Congratulations to James for correctly identifying the Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis). According to All About Birds ([link removed]) , Dark-eyed Juncos are among the most abundant forest birds of North America, with one estimate of their population at 630 million individuals. They have a number of different morphs that are quite distinct – our mystery bird was an Oregon morph. A platform-style bird feeder with sunflower or safflower seeds will attract this snow bird to your yard.
