For years I've recorded the dates when the first and last Juncos appear in
my yard. Today, Oct. 25, the first one showed up at my feeders, sampling the
scattered seed below the mixed seed feeder. A bonus: a Carolina Wren at the
feeder. It's nice to see them making a comeback!

instinct, a few feet away but separated from me by an immense uncrossable
distance. It knows, and I do
