You only have them during migration? Hmm. Would not have thought that. Any pics?

Based on what I'm hearing from a birder who has been keeping tabs on them for ages, the local birds aren't visting feeders due to all the natural flowering plants staying in flower much longer this unusually cool spring. In particular, she noted that tulip poplar was attracting them. I've seen a couple of local birds at other places, just none at my feeder until now.

Just imported some photos for processing yesterday. Didn't see anything that completely wowed me, but I'll post one or two in a few days.

Rog,

Here's a couple of shots I took the other day. Neither is spectacular, just wanted to show the type of feeders I'm using. The homemade feeder is under an eave, so it's in the shadows most of the day. It's an 8oz maple syrup jar with red solo cup over it. I don't get good photo ops from it, but I can see it from my couch and kitchen window. The commercial feeder gets more light and visitors. I can also see it from my couch. Counted 28 individuals migrating through the other day. All single bird visits to the feeders. The adult males must have already migrated down because I've not seen one. I understand they go down before the female and young birds.
