There are a few "hanger-on". There was no winter here; winter here is, compared to other parts of the country, and world, very mild, and the birds are reflecting it. Many migrants had left nearly two weeks ago, very early for this time of year. The average temperature has been 75 degrees; on pace to set a record. Some of my favorite winter birds made no appearance at all.
