We have fledgling Dark-eyed Juncos visiting the front feeder on Gildersleeve Mountain. Fledglings have a streaked breast and less even colored plumage on their upper parts.
Late August is not an un unprecedented time frame for this in their Ohio breeding range, but it seems most Juncos in this area quit after their July brood. An August brood would likely be the third of the season.
