I have a question about junco habitat.  Maybe no one will know but I figured 
these email lists might have some answers.  So at my home in Johnson City along 
the southern tier, I live on the edge of town on a hill in a suburban setting.  
Lots of yards and lots of scattered mainly Norway spruces.  Also lots of blue 
and Colorado spruces along with balsam and Fraser firs scattered about. No 
areas of canopy just yards with grass and a plethora of bushes. I have noticed 
over the last several years quite a good number of dark eyed juncos nesting. I 
have had a pair at my house for several years. They are all over in my 
neighborhood.  I live at 1300 feet so not a particularly high elevation.

I am spending a few days at Star Lake in the western Adirondacks with family.  
The cottage we are in  is among many sprinkled by the lake. No closed canopy, a 
lot of large white pine, some balsam fir, some Eastern hemlock and a lot of 
sugar maple.  I have 2 blackburnian and 2 pine warblers within earshot of the 
cottage. Red eyed vireos all over, Robins, song sparrows, chipping sparrows 
etc, but no juncos!  I have had only one since I have been here on a hike and 
that's it.  Seems like similar habitats as the southern tier except more 
conifers. What gives?  Curious.  Thanks.
