More indoor birding

Between Portland’s worst snow storm in forty years and working more hours for the holiday season, I have not ventured out birding lately. I am ever grateful for those birds that come to the feeder and provide me with a birding fix. The most common visitors are Dark-eyed Juncos.

Here is an adult female Dark-eyed Junco.  Note the bit of brown on the crown and nape and how the hood is not an intense gray.

This male shows a solid dark gray hood (the light flecks on the crown are water droplets).

This American Goldfinch is already showing flecks of yellow.

  1. I love the checklist you created. I printed it and used it at Ridgefield (so I guess it works in WA, ha ha) the other day. I like having a printed list like that, thanks for making it available.
