The Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) nest that we monitored with a nest camera fell victim to predation. A common Gartersnake visited the nest and ate the young nestlings. This is a common and natural occurrence with ground nests. As unfortunate as this was for the Dark Eyed Junco, she may lay a second clutch of eggs in this nest.
