My experience with these birds is that in the presence of a reliable
feeder they don't venture more that a couple of blocks from their food
source. If there are oak or hazelnut trees in the area so much the
better. If you are seeing them in different locations significantly
further away then the chances are good they are different than your locals.

I have not had this verified but I think that in the Pacific Northwest
these birds are more federcentric than they would be further south.
