I like birds too and have a bunch of feeders with different feed to attract certain birds.
Im in Southern Il and I too have noticed a few things..
like you, the singing at night. Weird to say the least. Ive noticed that I have a LOT more robin eggs on the GROUND this year. Not from Storms.. I
swear it looks like they are laid on the ground!
I have had NO humming birds this year whatsoever which is unusual. NO butterflies of any kind
so far. We have a lot of Cardinals, which is unusual for us and about a million wrens? I think theyre wrens or somthing about the size of a finch all
over the place. My crows are gone. 6 years I had resident crows, theyre GONE this year.
I heard the resident owl up until early last month.. and
now I never hear him. Again, 6 years of hearing him hoot and now silence. I truly hope this is just temporary due to it being unusually hot early in
the season or something similar.
One more thing.. we are seeing a lot of sick deer along the road. ALlive but ill and sitting there again this year. We had the same last year.. and I
HOPE I dont notice an increase.
Not to be a doomtard, but Im older and things are different. Ive been around quite a few springs and summers.. never noticed these weird things
before.. or maybe my attention wasnt called to it. However, in just the 6 yrs we have been at this place we are now, this year is even more strange
than last year, which was out of the ordinary as well due to losing ever bat we had established here in our bat houses. Bugs and mosquitoes galore
