Mine are all gone but I think I saw a few northerners pass by on their way back to Brazil yesterday.
Sad to see them go. Until next year, here's to a successful season.

Let's make 2022 the best ever, shoot for lots of fledges!

Glad you have no sparrows, whittling them down here.
nailed 4 today and one starling. They are coming to the feeder. And don't leave....
