It's a bit disconcerting not to see birds around.....even when the weather is reasonable.
One benefit of living in the South, I always have birds. I maintain 6 seed feeders, 2 suet feeders, use quality seed and keep them clean. All are in viewing from my "throne" on the back deck. Hardly a day goes by that I don't see cardinals, jays, bluebirds, wrens, titmice, doves, chickadees, catbirds, mockingbirds, house finches, towhees, goldfinches, white breasted and brown headed nuthatches, thrashers, downy wood peckers, various sparrows and frequently have hawks, owls, and pileated woodpeckers. I have been feeding for 30+ years so I think I'm also on the favored place to rest for quite a few migratories !
