Juncos Check in for Winter

The winter cast has grown a little more with the arrival of another species.  I spotted the first Slate Colored Junco of the winter this afternoon.  At least these snowbirds are ahead of any snow!  I am sure they may have been around a few more days than this, but for whatever reason it takes me a time to spot the little devils.  The juncos will be a fine addition to the scratch ground crowd, currently held by House Finches, cardinals and Mourning Doves.  That mix has gotten a little old.  With juncos and perhaps one more (Siskins?) things could get very lively very soon.  So now we have the juncos and White Throated Sparrows.  Who is next?
