- About Us
This small, elegant slate grey and white bird is a year-round resident and makes good use of home feeding stations. Groups of juncos, sometimes a dozen or more, will feed together in one area, making use of both woodlands and residential areas. They prefer to feed on sunflower seeds on the ground, though they will also take other seeds and visit hanging feeders. Juncos nest on the ground and are very susceptible to predation and disturbance by dogs and cats. Keeping pets inside or on leash during the nesting season and having some wild, brushy areas around your home will increase the chances of successful nesting, not only for juncos but for many other species.
The Confederation Forests will provide habitat for all species, making a place to live, learn, and enjoy for the islanders who are here now, and those still yet to come.
