Outside of Brownsville, local talent is average, except the number of House Finch does seem way down (~3 recently rather than dozens), and the number of Purple Finch up (~5 recently rather than ad-hoc singles). Earlier in the year the House Finch were more abundant.
I've failed to keep the sun seed feeder tubes filled every day this year, so have been wondering how it might change the mix of visiting species.

My fifth year at sw Eugene location and the first with no visible or audible breeding House Finches. Otherwise the local talent is about average.

We see one or two Black-headed Grosbeaks at our feeder per day and a chickadee or two. Violet Green Swallows are nesting in our neighbors’ boxes that usually host English House Sparrows.
