Migrants Moving In

"We still have about a dozen immatures and adult females," reports Judy Reagan in Missouri. "I wonder if some are migrants from the north? They are not as comfortable at the feeders, meaning they hover and don't perch. I've been feeding them a 3:2 ratio the past couple weeks and it seems they feed more heartily. All we can hope is that it bulks them up for their journey, and they return next spring...will miss them for sure."
