Pine Grosbeak (Pinicola enucleator) & Dark-Eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis)

With so many spruce and fir trees surrounding the campground, it is easy to attract these beautiful birds! A constant stream of both species (along with other species) feed at our seed feeders - all day long! The birds consume between 80 and 90 pounds of sunflower seeds in two months! Many people enjoy sitting on the veranda of the cabin, watching and photographing these birds. The Dark-eyed Junco is of the Oregon race. The males have a very dark head and hood which extends to the shoulders. The females are not as definitive, as you can tell from this photo.
