Darked Eyed Junco

Dark-Eyed Junco

 

Although there are five forms of the Dark-Eyed Junco, they have some similar features, including the plain feathers, dark hood, and white tail feathers. These birds generally weigh about half an ounce to an ounce.

 

Each of the five different kinds of Dark-Eyed Juncos reside in differing forest or woodland locations throughout its habitat.

 

 

 

 

 

Nesting Habits of the Dark-Eyed Junco

 

In forested areas, the Dark-Eyed Juncos build a cup-shaped nest constructed of leaves, moss and small roots. The interior is lined with soft materials such as moss or grass.

 

Inside the nest, the female will lay 3-5 bluish white, speckled eggs. She will incubate the eggs for 12-13 days, and the young Dark-Eyed Juncos will leave the nest in 9-12 days after hatching to embark on their own lives.
