Hi, all,

A number of birds that prefer to eat insects have been showing up at my
feeders, notably Baltimore Orioles and Indigo Buntings. I've never had so
much use by these species in spring. A friend reported a Yellow Warbler at
her feeders - very unusual.

I think our cooler-than-usual weather has affected the insect populations,
and for those who stop feeding at this time of year I suggest you consider
putting out food.

I'm still seeing a Pine Siskin or two, making me hope that a few are
remaining in the area to breed.

Good birding,

Casey Rucker
