    >I hit my favorite spot over Labor Day weekend with nary a bird contact. Are the Blues down this year or perhaps the cold front moving through kept them close to dark timber? Hard to say with these mysterious birds.

I've had pretty good luck on Blues this year (refuse to use the term Dusky). It's those darn other early species that are troubling me.
