It strikes me that this might just be following the food. Many years we see our hummers disappear for a week or more in early June to and then return. Went to Watkins Glen gorge this morning and was surprised to see many birds. Not usually the case there. Even saw Louisiana Waterthrush

Something not mentioned is the impact of unexpected Atlantic tropical and hurricane storm systems and the affect these may have upon migrating neotropical passerines which launch from the Cape Hatteras, North Carolina area East out into the Atlantic Ocean, to catch the Trade Winds pushing them

Not at all in banding reports which show lower numbers on average in some places, more in others and a healthy bunch of birds. Uniform agreement that weather caused a strange migration with both flyovers and late, if much at all, movers after a blocking front(s). All of this is localized and some

I did put out a dish of water and also a dish of mealworms. I lead an odd life so I have not been outside yet. I will report as soon as I find out if the bird figured out how to fly down and out. I love Brown Thrashers! Melanie On 6/20/2018 12:14 PM, Donna Lee Scott wrote: > ? Put big shallow

I remember this conversation last year. If there is a marked rapid decline in song birds as reported, then something has occurred in the past couple years that is wiping our birds out. Habitat loss is a gradual slow process that would not be so readily noticed on a wide scale from year to year.

? Put big shallow pan of water (1" deep water) on floor near door. Maybe thrasher will come to drink then fly out. This morning at 6:30 I saw one of "my" brown thrashers in a dark place in a bush. We looked at each other for a while. Nice start to day. Donna Scott Lansing Sent from my iPhone
