Juncos; newest arrivals in Bird Alley

The daily rollcall of returning birds to Bird Alley continues to brighten my days.  Yesterday a new species arrival: Slate-coloured Juncos, a little favourite that I haven't seen in quite a while,this species was  probably last seen in Bird Alley in the fall.

Yesterday's species roll call included: Juncos, one Song Sparrow, Mourning Doves, Red-winged Blackbirds and the frequent visitor, the little male Downy Woodpecker,
and many, many more handsome, colourful Grackles.
I wonder what today will bring? hopefully more sparrows and more little Juncos.
