First Oregon Junco of the Season

This isn't just a picture of black-eyed Susans gone to seed. That fuzzy blob is an Oregon Junco. I was just wondering this week where they were. They'll spend the winter here. I don't remember them eating these seeds before. Mostly, pine siskins will feast on these...if they come. They don't always winter here. They're not predictable. Update: hard frost last night, I'm glad I picked as many tomatoes as I could. Forecast includes a chance of snow tonight!
