I just noticed that I have NOT seen my BHGrosbeaks yet this year. For the past 15 years, I always have the same group come and stay till Fall. At least 5 of them, sometimes more. As of today, I still have not seen any. I do have lots of Evening that I don't usually get but a few times.. they are here almost every day. But none of the BH. Has anybody seen them yet? Seems to me so crazy this year with half the birds fledged, the other just sitting on eggs.. and some other not yet started I suppose. Give me a shout out if they are back and just not visiting me. I'll probably cry if that's the case, but I'll get over it.
