... moved on. It's been over 24 hours without a single one here
at our feeder. Still seeing lots of finches, sparrows, a few chickadees,
Towees (including a young that day before yesterday was still begging
food from Mom and now seems to be on its own. We're getting Flickers
(the same ones?) several times a day and the occasional Stellars.

It's been a whole day since I've seen a Violet-green Swallow but
the vultures, crows, ravens, and eagles are still here (mostly a
ways out over the fields below the hill). And, if anything, the
number of doves is up - or the same ones are returning to the yard
several times a day.

Many of you reported seeing Tanagers but there weren't any here.
I have seen a few cowbirds and Brewer's Blackbirds. There is a
small population of White-Crowned Sparrows that keep coming back.

The most numerous are the finches - especially the Purple Finches.

A "typical" Late Spring ... but a little bit later than usual.
