I've got a pair of juncos going here, at our 1st floor condo. Ridiculously,
they usually nest in a pot near our door which has a sprinkler tube in it.
Last year they moved to a neighboring pot, leaving some probably too-wet
eggs behind. They tick away when we come and go.

Several species have paired up the past few weeks. Bewick’s wrens were the
first I noticed pairing up (e.g., seen together foraging, seemingly
inseparable). A pair of crows were not far behind taking turns breaking
lilac branches last week from the yard. A black capped chickadee pair as
well seemed to be foraging together. This morning a pair of Stellar jays
were gathering nest material and flew off together. Lastly, a robin seems
to have claimed my yard but no corresponding mate yet...any pair sightings
in your yard?
