I posted a picture of some Junco eggs about a week ago. Imagine my surprise to come back from days off and find the nest full of chicks. They were sleeping peacefully waiting on momma to come feed them. I will keep you posted on their progress. It is so much fun to watch nature change on the mountain. It was a chilly hike up yesterday. The high was 62 with a low last night of 52. The clouds hung around and kept things nice and chilly. Today is looking like another fine day up top.
