McMinnville report:

My first backyard junco appeared Oct 1 and was alone for several days. By
Oct 18 there were 5, then 12 on Oct 23. Now I'm up to 15 or more.

I've had plenty of juncos every day for a couple of weeks in my back yard in
Newberg, including one slate-colored today. In one five minute span today I
had oregon and slate-colored juncos, song sparrow, house sparrow, house
finch, spotted towhee, american goldfinch, bewick's wren, steller's jay,
scrub jay, red-breasted nuthatch and black-capped chickadee at the feeders
and ground below. Two squirrels and even a rare chipmunk joined in.

in East Portland. September fires I can understand made things tough for

much wildlife. I thought the juncos would return in October - feeders

ready and their usual companions, GCS, Fox Sparrows and finches arrived.

I have seen a handful of juncos in the neighborhood, but none in my

yard. What gives, anybody know?
