All I know is we have no crows here as in zip nadda none!!! We're down to one pair of jays. We got hit hard and I'm not seeing any signs that we've bounced back. I'm putting out unsalted peanuts and black oil sunflower seeds for the 2 jays I've got and I'm making sure there's an open source of water. That's all I can do. I planted 25 American hazelnuts for them and a few beaked hazelnuts but very few are left from bambis.

Where I live, Crows took the biggest hit. For a few years, it was rare to see one, but they are slowly coming back. Black-capped Chickadee numbers dropped too, but not as bad as the Crows, and they are recovering now. It seems like Blue Jays are a little less common now. Robins have remained abundant. Bluebirds have never been common right around here, and I don't think there's been much change in their numbers, I still see them once in a great while.

Not far to my south around Kankakee State Park, Crows remained abundant, I've been amazed at how many I see when I go there in recent years.
