I read a letter this morning in the letters to the editor from Gerry Russell about not seeing any birds. I also noticed it, too. My feeders are also full. I had some cardinals a couple of weeks ago, but now they are gone. Yesterday I had one mourning dove. I have noticed more hawks in the area lately and believe a hawk got one of the doves about three or four weeks ago. I have heard blue jays further back in the woods around my house, but not much else besides crows. It might be possible that the smaller birds have gone deeper into the woods to make it harder for the hawks to get to them. I actually had one Cooper’s hawk come after birds at my feeder. It didn't catch any but sat on the pole until it saw me.
