I’m so sorry about your bad luck this season! It’s been pretty quiet for me too but I’m in eastern MA haha 🙂 I love that shot of the skipper/moth!
I grew up in eastern MA, in Bridgewater. Where are you?
Yeah, I suppose we could even be seeing decadal population and migration path fluctuations, so I am not *that* worried about the birds (well, more than usual), it does suck from a birding perspective of course. Thanks for the photo compliment.
