Same here on Lansing Station Rd. Few feeder birds, last few weeks, & no squirrels, when I usually have 10. I thought this might be due to birds & SQs finding seeds & nuts from fall harvest in plants/trees nearby.
However, this morning I heard a "dawn chorus" in woods across street. Mostly Blue Jays I think. Many come to my seeds on ground.
