[CT Birds] Junco confusion

No inconsistency Don. Check the definition of "virtually." I've been aware of Juncos breeding in CT for some time, having first seen their nests here the better part of 3 decades ago. :)

There is an apparent inconsistency in Dave Provencher's post of 9/14 which I think is muddying the waters a bit (at least up here in Northern CT, when we  can break through the ice). First he states:
" I almost mentioned in my reply that Juncos do breed in CT", but in the next sentence, says: 
" virtually 100% of Dark-eyed Juncos breed outside of CT".
For those of us  shivering up here under the northern lights that is  an obvious contradiction. If there is any question though, climb up to the hemlock forests atop Canaan Mtn in North Canaan  in July and  August  and you will find families of Juncos happily scratching in the needles and  chasing through the trees. There is no doubt they breed there.
