After mentioning my local mutant junco here several times, I figured I owed you a photo, so I went stalking him today. In searching for him I also found lots of normal-looking juncos. I did eventually find my white-splashed bird, so read on to see this unusual junco – after first admiring the regular juncos, because every junco is awesome.
And here’s the white-patched guy. He sang here last year too. I’ve been watching for other white-patched juncos, hoping that he might have passed his funny looks on to his chicks, but so far I’ve never seen any.
