Walnut Creek sightings
Stuck near the house due to painters working inside, but made a short visit to Heather Farm yesterday morning. Ted Robertson and I saw a Yellow Warbler and I later saw a Raven on a parking lot light.
We had two Juncos in our patio yesterday, one of them is a young one with a grayish head but still streaky on the breast. The other appeared to be an adult female. She was here again a few minutes ago, too.
This is the third Junco family of the year. We had two young ones at once last spring, an adult feeding a young Cowbird in the summer and now this one. We seemed to have two pairs of adults around. One of the pairs had a male with some white patches right at the edge of his black hood. The other male looked normal.
