New to this birding business since I moved to the Atlanta area in Georgia a few months ago.
Something I noticed recently is that all the white-breasted nuthatches have disappeared from our back yard. Previously (January and February) they would feed at my hanging feeder several times during the day. I'm not 100% sure, but I think when they were feeding, the dark-eyed juncos would be on the grass feeding at the same time. The dark-eyed junco population has thinned to just a few a day (expected), but the nuthatches are totally gone for at least 15 days. Did the nuthatches take off with a flock of juncos on their way back to Canada? All the maps I look at show the nuthatches as being year-round in my area?
Great site by the way, I've learned a lot!

First of, welcome to Whatbird!
I am not sure where your White-breasted Nuthatches have gone. I don't think that they would have flown north. If they did they probably did not do it with the juncos. And yes, they should be a year round resident to your area.
