There they still are.  (And yes, those are my straight needles in the unexpected reflection.) I guess it’s not too late in the season, then: the junco is still feeding his lady love the house finch, and later flew off with her as always.  I’d love to have some biologist explain it to me–even more, I’d love to see their nest and if any young were raised and which type of bird they were and who adopted whom.

I’ve heard tale here in the foothills that copperheads and black snakes do mate, but I can’t remember the “social” outcome. Seems to me I did hear that the male was “always” one particular breed and the female, the other, but I can’t recall… (Hey Dad!?)
