Where have the Rosy-finches gone

For the past 10 years the Brown-capped Rosy-finches have visited my feeders starting in October with visits picking up almost daily in November through April. Zero rosy-finches this winter. Any one else noticed an absence of Rosy-finches?

I've seen a few reported this year in Summit County, but that's about it. Do you ever get Gray-crowned or Black?

Finally a few arrived last weekend, a paltry total of nine brown-capped. BUT today I counted 51 brown-capped. Most of the rosies are brown-capped with maybe 0 to 10 gray-crowned. Black rosies are rarer with 1 to 4 when the show up. Typically the blacks arrive with winter storms from the west and do not hang out very long. I have had both the Interior and Coastal Gray-crowned.
