[CT Birds] BT Green Warblers

I am experiencing a similar lack of Black-throated Greens where I have
come to expect them each year in Ashford (Westford). I heard Eastern
Wood Peewees (2) for the first time yesterday, 26 May. I have not heard
or seen other flycatchers except an occasional Great-crested vocalizing
where usually they would be common. Our Phoebes seem to have left but
may be busy with young. Blue-winged, Yellow, and Common Yellow-throat
numbers also seem down. We have more N. Orioles, catbirds, downies and
hairies than usual, taking all the suet, oranges, and hummingbird nectar
we can provide.

Is anyone noticing a decrease in the BT Green numbers this year? 
  I spent the entire weekend camping in Housatonic Meadows and had the
typical varieties of birds surrounding the camp. Blackburnian is very
abundent as are Pine warblers. However, unlike other years, the BT
Greens were non-existant at the camp. All other years they are almost
always present throughout our 4 day camp trip.
  Typically I'm hearing and seeing many more BT Greens than I am this
year. I also noticed this while birding River Rd in Kent this may
multiple times. They were there very spotty but not in the usual
  Anybody else experiance this?
