Skittered.

A Dark-eyed Junco skittered across a porch step after a recent snowfall.

I want to thank you, my dear readers, for visiting my blog. I also want to wish you merry Christmas, joyous Kwanzaa, hope you have had a happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, an excellent solstice, and a healthy, prosperous 2022.

Wind up toy

I sometimes think of the Dark-eyed Junco as the songbirds’ version of a wind-up toy. It suddenly starts to skitter over the ground or snow and as suddenly stops. It will quickly back- then forward-scratch to reveal hidden tidbits. I enjoy watching them go about their business.
