Subject: Re: [cobirds] Bluebird dearth
Bluebird migration, as visible from my home on the west side of Superior,
was a little different than usual this year. Normally I'll see small
flocks of Mountain Bluebirds passing by intermittently over a period of
several weeks. This year, I only saw them for three days (around March
23-26) but there were at least a hundred each day, sometimes in flocks of
40-50.

There have been some good-sized flocks (30+) in other areas of S. Boulder
County since then, but not near my house. Overall, I'd say the total
number I've seen this year is higher than usual.
