It's going on about 4 weeks now that I've hardly seen any birdlife in my area. They've completely vanished... I've literally sat for hours in a spot that previously yielded me regular activity, and there's been zero sightings. Usually see at least the regulars, like cardinals, chickadees, etc, but it's dead.
Is it the time of year that has them in hiding? My bird photography has ground to a halt, my 500 II is a paper weight.
