anyone still seeing the red birds (cardinals)???

A lot of birds are not arpund our place in SW Ala. this year. It is very very quiet in the mornings. I see an occasional mockingbird, and of course the usual small number of vultures.
the blue jays left a few days ago, and there were not many of them.
This time of year, we always have had Red birds, and lots of small seed eating birds..not a peep..cannot remember last time I saw a cardinal.

Anyone ?????

1. Tons of them. I've had as many as a dozen at once on my feeders.

3. Is that normal for where you are?

I am living in 15 acres of woods....would think a few birds would show up, as they always have, but noooooo.

4. I am in Minneapolis, in the city.

We always have lots of birds. I put some feeders out, and (besides the usual millions of sparrows), I've seen house finches, chickadees, nuthatches, goldfinches, juncos, blue jays, cardinals, and downy, hairy and red-bellied woodpeckers.

2. I see them here in CT. We seem to have a lilac bush they like to hang out in...

I see both males and their mates right outside my window. I love that view...

6. Clarke and Wilcox

still have a few cardinals and mockingbirds. Ridiculous amounts of starlings, too, if y'all want them.

7. Hey Joey....I am over in Monroe county...

Still fairly birdless this am.

Listen, wundergroud weather site says we get a big storm for Christmas day, and I know your area really gets hit by these things.
Stay low and safe.

10. Y'all stay safe too!

Monroe gets hammered about as badly as we do. :/ I remember driving down 84 between Grove Hill and Monroeville after Ivan and just being floored at how many of those massive pecans down that road got wiped out.

8. Our team of Winter Bird counters in NJ saw fewer of all species in general.

9. I have heard that from several sources..

We had zero chimney swifts this year at our place, but there were several small flocks in other places in town.
I am not even hearing the woodpeckers, we have had 3 kinds all around us for years.

Reports are that warmer temps are moving birds further north, and that some migratory birds are not even migrating.
