I have a tufted Junco coming to my bird feeder everyday!
I live in Orange County, NY (about 20-30 min from Lafayette, NJ) and just saw a tufted Junco on our fence.
We have a tufted junco visiting us every year. It comes alone and likes to bath in our swimming pool. It comes in October and leaves within a month. We live in Modesto california.
