Probably because of the weather, in part, the birds were not  very active 
Monday or today. But many species are in the middle of their nesting  cycle 
now and maybe they are keeping quiet. I had a Black-billed Cuckoo  both days, 
in different locations but the same area. I am hearing and seeing  more 
Cedar Waxwings almost daily now, and a few more Blue-gray Gnatcatchers.  Today 
I heard 3 different Acadian Flycatchers for the first time at BHYF.  Also, 
there are more Least Flycatchers this year, or at least I am finding more.
