Subject: [de-birds] return to our feeders
We have been birding in Sinaloa and Nayarit Mexico for about 10 days,
having returned in the middle of the night very early Thursday morning. We were
acconpanied by 6 other members of the Sussex Bird Club and we observed some
276 species, many life birds for the attendees.

On Thursday morning when we checked the feeders they were all empty with no
birds visiting. When we left last week, there was the usual frenzy of
activity, especially at the shelled sunflowers and shelled peanuts.

Not until this morning did we get any feeder visitors. We had our
orange-crowned warbler at the suet, junco and swamp sparrow along with
doves and white-throated sparrows on the ground. Our hermit thrush was
scurrying around, too.

By the way, we missed fox sparrow completely this winter. We usually have
reliable fox sparrows with other ground feeders every evening.

Mexico was wonderful but glad to be home with many singing pine warblers in
the loblolly pines.
