Goldfinches disappeard all at once in Dallas-area backyard

We had many goldfinches in our backyard this winter; nyjer feeder frequently had all six perches occupied, with more on a feeder with sunflower hearts. Then, a week or so ago, they were all gone. The food is fresh, the feeders clean. Dark eyed juncos have been on both feeders, but they had been for sime time. It's still winter, seems too soon for the goldfinches to have gone north.

Beside the juncos, we still have house finches, cardinals, chcickadees, woodpeckers, mourning and white winged doves, and wrens. The occasional hawk swoops in (not often), but that's always been the case.

So where did the goldfinches go?

Paired up and dispersed, ready to breed probably.
