There at least 3 pairs of Wood ducks in site of our Oakwood home. They have been nesting here since we arrive 25 plus years ago. The ducks beat us back from the south as did the open waters. The Juncos must have sensed the cold spell we are having since they are still here. The Chickadees are constants as are the gray squirrels. The Cedar Waxwings show up when there are berries to eat. We enjoy their brief stop.

Dark-eyed Juncos vary in color, a few very dark almost charcoal.
