Recipe from Matt Dark, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant
On May 2, I found a newly built Dark-eyed Oregon Junco nest in one of my hanging baskets. By May 9 we had 4 eggs. This past Monday, May 18, the eggs hatched, 3 between 9am and noon, the final one during the night into Tuesday.
I know this is a "played out" location - but I couldn't resist as the weather was so nice tonight!
