To add to Laura and Judith's observation we have been watching Barn
Swallows desperately beating the brushy banks of ponds attempting to
rise insects and getting no more than a very few cluster flies. Tree
Swallows doing much of the same but finding a few Black Flies higher up
(and around observers). Yesterday, I had a House Wren follow me around
as I was doing chores just hoping I would raise some lunch but insects
were few. It is indeed a very rough several days for these insect

We have had any number of species on peanuts butter and suet cakes and
suet. To day we added Baltimore Oriole and Rose-breasted Grosbeak to the
PB list. I should add that we are careful to use natural PB and not the
brands with all the enhanced sugars.
