> Today as Karen watered one of our gardens a Dark-eyed Junco shot into the air and severely scolded Karen. We suspected that she had accidentally watered a nest. Sure enough, we soon found a nest with nestlings under a fern.
> The parent juncos retreated to a nearby birch tree to confer. One parent returned to the nest.
> The other junco parent brought food for the nestlings.
> Luckily it is a warm day and it appears that the nestlings are doing fine. They are vocalizing and eating. That area of the garden won't get watered for awhile!
