1 December 2013 – Dark-eyed Junco

Of 161 total casualties, this is just the third junco.  It’s also the first casualty I’ve recorded since Oct. 27: apparently, the second pulse of migrants (all those Lincoln’s Sparrows) was a bit earlier this year.

Given the bird’s condition (rather stiff and disheveled with sunken eyes), I’m inclined to think that she actually hit yesterday, Nov. 30.  I left her in place to examine removal rate.
