I have the usual cohort of chickadees, titmice, and cardinals, plus a small
group of house finches that have been with me since the early fall. Not
mobs, but steady. The downy and red-bellied woodpeckers are regulars at the
suet feeder, too. In fact, I am seeing almost all the birds except
cardinals eating a lot of suet. I put up the nyger feeder but haven't had
many goldfinches yet. I agree, it's just been too warm.

I have noticed a huge falloff since the drought broke. Before that I had
more birds at my water sources and feeders than I had ever had before in
the eight years we've been here in East Nashville.

*Subject:* [TN-Bird] low activity at feeders
I was wondering if anyone else is noticing a drop in activity at their
bird feeders. I'm seeing about half the birds that I usually see and I'm
starting to get
worried that their might be something wrong with my seed.
At first, I attributed it to the crazy weather, but I decided to see if
anyone else was noticing this.
