Junco baby about to Fledge

Junco baby about to fledge, it jumped from the nest basket (fuschia) into another basket (petunia) and then took off from here. Last baby Junco to fledge in 2020.

What kind of bird is this?

This bird chose to nest right by our front door, which had been surprising to both us and the bird. There are hatchlings inside now, and I’m being watched every time I open my door. I love it.

Junco Nest 2 2020

In 2017, we discovered a dark-eyed junco family nesting about five feet away from our window. https://nestwatch.org/connect/blog/juncos-nest-in-a-birdhouse-part-two/
Three years later, they (or their offspring?) were back in the same location (different hanging structure) in a Fuschia hanging plant. The two babies successfully fledged despite a nosey scrub jay family.
(Please forgive mistakes. I’m a novice at birdwatching who is open to learning.)

Dark-eyed Junco Nest – 3rd floor balcony birdhouse

The old bird house on our tiny balcony on the 3rd floor was chosen by a pair of Dark-eyed Juncos for nesting. These resourceful little birds have made some amazing shifts in behavior to adapt to urban development. Even watching them build the nest, we weren’t convinced they’d use it. But the other day, lo and behold… two little eggs!

Update Junco Hatchlings

Update on the Junco nest in our hanging basket. All five eggs have hatched.

Dark-eyed Junco Nest

We hung up these baskets about three weeks ago. I’m glad we could provide some habitat right next to an active construction site.

Oregon junco under iris

Oregon junco nest, three eggs. Found on the ground underneath large native iris tenax clump, one foot off path on side of house.

Dark-eyed Junco nest

This little Dark-eyed Junco nest was so well hidden. It was tucked under a little mossy rock ledge on the ground. I was walking by and a junco suddenly took flight, so I looked closely and found it. Inside was a nestling and two eggs. Sadly, over the course of a few days they all disappeared. First the nestling, than one of the eggs, and then the final egg. The parents were on the nest most of the the time, so I don’t know what could have gotten it. Perhaps mice or chipmunks.

Junco Nest in a Tree

While out bird watching my friend and I saw a Junco – then it flew up to this tree nest where it fed the little ones. The nest was about 6.5 feet up a tree on a little “shelf” in a hole in the tree.

Surprise!

I was mowing the lawn and she flew out. I had never seen a bird’s nest like this, she is now very protected.

Cowbird young in Junco Nest

We’ve been watching the evolution of a Dark-Eyed Junco nest as its been parasitized by a Cowbird. We believe that two of the Junco eggs have been eaten and replaced by two Cowbird eggs at different times. One of the Cowbird eggs has hatched.

Baby Juncos Gaining Feathers

Junco babies continue to rapidly grow, open eyes and develop feathers all over their bodies now.

Junco Nest

Nest underneath patio in backyard. Second year returning to this site.

Dark-eyed Junco

This dark-eyed junco made a nest in a hanging planter under the eave of our back porch. Here she is sitting on 4 yet-to-be-hatched eggs. Since these photos were taken 3 of the eggs have hatched.

Nearly There!

This is the first time I’ve seen any of the babies so far out of the nest cup I could get a picture. A few dozen attempts and I finally got this amazing picture! This is 1 of 3 babies on day 11-12. I think at least 2 of them fledge tomorrow, #3 hatched a full day later.

Dark-eyed Junco, freshly hatched!

I’m lucky enough to have discovered this nest in one of my Strawberry baskets. I now have a nest camera on it.
