A male SLATE-COLORED JUNCO joined our growing winter sparrow flock today. We usually have one or two around each winter.
Also of note was a very brightly marked PINE SISKIN. The usually subdued yellow areas were very large and fluorescent yellow. We've had singletons with this plumage on two or three other occasions over the 23 years in our location. We live in the Santa Clara area of Eugene.
