Since the climate has been changing, are the birds that normally would migrate south staying in your region?

Mary - Which birds are missing? Maybe they have remained in the areas that have provided all their needs through the winter months.
I'm not seeing as many snow birds ... black capped chickadees are few and far between as, for some reason are the goldfinches. I haven't seen a White-breasted Nuthatch or wren yet this year either. The titmouse is around but not in great numbers.
I really love those little chickadees, nuthatch and titmouse. Add the melodious chatter to the bird feeders.
I wonder, too. Must keep bringing awareness to the public and all generations. Make changes for the benefit of humans and all living beings.
Thanks for complete response. The sensitive birds signal environmental changes from both manmade & natural causes.
I hope the wolves don't get too friendly. No winter birds? Look out for American tree sparrow, rough legged hawk, bohemian waxwing, common redpoll, northern shrike, chestnut-backed chickadee, Harris sparrow, snow bunting, snowy owl
