No real paucity of birds down here in Preston. Probably my highest cost of
bird seed in several years. Lacking goldfinches, which we had tons of last
year, but many white-throated Sparrows and juncos. Many blackbirds,
including the on-again-off-again yellow-headed blackbird, and quite a few
Blue Jays Etc.
