thanks to the OP for posting. as stated, updates always welcome, especially from a source (origin) opinion. S&F for you. sad to hear the birds are
not well. sure wish i could say otherwise.
here, in sw/coastal FL, birds are not readily available to observe. (as they are, normally). just this am sunrise 1/8, i sat out to observe and in
30min time, i saw 2 birds fly overhead, each flying alone but oddly enough, both were headed north? ... in January? now, i'm not sure which north
(mag/tru) but from this location, GoM is due west and both were northbound.
i did hear some faint chirping in the distance but not like 'normal'. i haven't seen the volume/quantity i would consider normal but then again, i
didn't really expect to given the oil disaster this spring. But what is odd beyond that is the lack of seagulls and pelicans. it seems as though
their population was decimated not just damaged.
