The natural diversity in Greenhaven provides a variety of options for our feathered friends.
Typically the first species of the year is the Junco. Visiting flocks of juncos will usually stay within an area of about 10 acres during their winter stay. To avoid competition, many female juncos migrate earlier and go farther south than most of the males. Juncos prefer to roost in evergreens at night but will also use tall grasses and brush piles. They return to the same roost location repeatedly and will share it with flock mates. The name junco is derived from the Latin words for the “rush” plant found in wetlands. The best time to see them is mid-December through late January.
