[CT Birds] The Junco

You know Paul I almost mentioned in my reply that Juncos do breed in CT, but
the original post was from a part of the state where, to my knowledge at
least, Juncos don't breed. Additionally, since virtually 100% of Dark-eyed
Juncos breed outside of CT, it is probably correct to assume the bird in
question is a migrant rather than a resident. I in no way consider the
northern part of CT separate from the southern part, it's  just I live in
the southern part and that's where I bird when I bird. As you know, my
natural history interests extend well beyond birds, and I have always been
jealous of the treasures the northern part of the state holds in the form of
reptiles, amphibians, butterflies, dragonflies, topography, and more. In
many ways the northern parts of CT are dearer to my heart than much of
southern CT. So if I in anyway made you think otherwise, I offer my humblest
apologies. Few things were further from my mind when I made that post.


And I for one would love to see more posts on CTBirds from the northern
parts of the state!

I just need to mention, on your last post Dave, you comment that
the Junco will be coming down in such and such a date. However,We all should
 that the Junco is a resident in the Northern parts of our State. We see
them all year round
up here. I just don't like to see mention of a bird topic on this site
that's as if the southern part of CT and its birds are all their is
about birds in CT. Your surely not the only one who does this Dave, but we
up here
in northern CT want to have our area recognized for our birds just as well
as those 
mentioned in the southern parts. Hope we all can understand that when we
CT birds on this site.
