I was noticing an eerie silence in my garden since this original post but did have a few Tufted Titmouses (Titmice?) show up that day at my feeder along with a group of chickadees and jays. I think it is cool that feeder birds continue to scout and forage for the "good" stuff and then probably also communicate with others about it. Isn't the bounty due to the amazing rains we had this past spring....but I am noticing some growth spurts on my fruit trees now after the recent rains, when they should be dropping leaves by now. Freaky.
