now 2 1/2 years I am surprised at so little number of birds here. I only moved 16 miles but its like night and day. I've put out 4 feeders and very few birds come to them. About the only thing I see regularly are buzzards and small brown birds that resemble skinny sparrows. I have 5 large holly trees of which 2 for some reason have berries year round. I have numerous types of oaks and maples plus citrus. There's lots of flowering trees and bushes to attract insects so why I don't see birds is weird. When I go down to the lake I some times see bats catching mosquitoes. The whole time I've only seen maybe 5 ducks total and about the same for herons of any kind.
