i have noticed far fewer birds around this year. Also, while hunting in south and west Texas this year there were far fewer doves around. I have also not seen nearly as many song birds this year at my backyear feeders as compared to previous years. I feed the multi-variety seed from Costco, and sterilize it myself in the microwave. We did have excess rain but I would have thought that would make for better cover and more birds, not fewer. Anyone else notice far fewer song birds or other birds in their area?
