Oregon Juncos are not supposed to be East of the Mississippi River. A couple years ago I took a picture of a male Oregon Junco and documented it with the state of Illinois. It was a thrill to see it on my flat feeder. The picture was lost when my old computer crashed. I was so happy to see this new visitor yesterday.

Wonderful! My dad used to live in north central Wisconsin and often remarked on all the juncos he saw. Don't know which kind of juncos though. Maybe dark-eyed. Thanks, Chickie!

Hum, a new one to me. Thanks for sharing.

The rusty markings really show up when enlarging the picture after putting it together.

You either have bad road maps in your part of the country or you have the birdie mojo working. Nice shot young lady.
