[wisb] Re: bird predictions

I would like to second what Greg wrote.  I woke before dawn yesterday all 
excited about seeing huge numbers of birds.  I birded in some of the best 
places around for nearly the entire day.  My total for warblers was --
Yellow - 3
Yellow-rumped - 1
N. Waterthrush - 1
C. Yellowthroat - 1
Add to that there was not a single Ruby-crowned Kinglet to be seen.  The day 
before I had them in huge numbers.  My total of White-throated Sparrows was 2 
(compared to dozens the day before), with no other migrant sparrows to be seen. 
 I walked a wood edge (on the lee side of the wind) for over a mile in a place 
where I nearly always find birds.  My total was one Blue Jay, which flew away 
the instant it saw me.  For this time of year, it was perhaps the worst day of 
birding I have ever experience.
