Juncos take over

My brother Bob, who lives just north of Parry Sound, Ontario, told me today that all his migrant sparrows had left and the Juncos had taken over at the feeders.   Parry Sound is about 150 km north of King City, but my situation is similar.   The last of the White-crowned and White-throated Sparrows left in the past few days and their places have been taken over by two dozen  Dark-eyed Juncos.   Below is a photo I came across of a leucistic Dark-eyed Junco taken by Bob McElroy, of Point Alexander, on the Ottawa River, near Deep River.   Bob and his wife Diana have a website about the goings-on in the upper Ottawa Valley and nearby Algonquin Park and it's certainly worth a look.   Google them at Bob and Diana McElroy.
