One of my favorite things about this time of the year is looking for Junco nests. The crew found this one on Alum Cave trail. We have had so much fun watching it and waiting for the babies to arrive. Well, they did, yesterday. I guess I now share my birthday with 4 little baby juncos. Bethany described them as looking like dust bunnies. I thought that was a very good description. I look forward to watching them over the next week and seeing them get big enough to fledge the nest. We have also spotted a fawn around camp. The does look like they are getting bigger and possibly ready to have more babies. The summer brings on new life in so many ways on the top of Mt. LeConte.
Yesterday was on again off again as far as precipitation. We saw a little bit of sun through out the day. The high was 61º with a low of 50º. It is currently foggy and wet.
