You may have noticed fewer birds around your feeders since the milder weather arrived. While we still have Woodpeckers, Goldfinches, Cardinal pair, Chickadees, Juncos, and others, the numbers are definitely lower right now. If you are concerned about "your" feathered friends, don't worry, they know where they found food previously and will visit your feeders again....very soon. Keep seed in your feeders, but maybe put a little less in them in these damp conditions, especially if you have noticed fewer numbers of birds/seed going down more slowly.
