Titmice have been one of the most common birds around my feeder for years until 
this season. Definitely in the top 5.  I'm feeding black oil sunflower and a 
couple of suet cakes ... same food in the same locations as previous years. 
Using a different larger heavy duty feeder though.

This year they are absent. 
Still seeing Gold Finch, White Breasted Nut Hatch, Downy & Red Bellied 
Woodpeckers, fewer than usual Chickadee, dark eyed Junco when there is snow, 
Finch (house or purple?) and a few sparrows.

Seed usage is down, I'm still on my first 40# bag, usually would have bought my 
second by now.

Anyone else having a species drop off?
