[Tweeters] Missing species

Here in the middle of Lewis County (Salkum/Cinebar area), several of us
who have bird feeders have missed some species in the past several
weeks--species that are usually here year round, such as Song Sparrows,
Juncos, and Spotted Towhees. And the hummingbirds have been few and far

We are wondering if others in the area have had the same experience and
if anyone has any idea why.

(In addition, some species that usually stay much longer left early--at
about the same time the others disappeared--namely Purple Finch and
Black-headed Grosbeak. Since the Evening Grosbeak and Varied Thrush did
not even show up this summer, that leaves our feeders to the now-nesting
Goldfinch, Jays, and Doves mostly.)
