[TN-Bird] Re: feeder clientele gone missing

Hi,

The numbers were down at my feeders (for almost all species) through out the 
month of November. The gold finches completely disappeared for a month, but 
showed up again this past Sat. AM en mass.

A single junco has been around for a week, whereas many juncos were visiting 
the feeders through out all of Nov. last year. And so far, I've had no white 
throated sparrows, which is also late.

I've been concerned about the changes, also.
