Oh, my -- I'm not even reporting in my my two sow bugs; I had hoped that my little piece of the Arizona mountains might do better by me@

We record birds that come to the feeders in the winter for Feeder Watch, and must remind ourselves that a report of few or no birds for a count period is just as important as a report of huge numbers--but it doesn't feel that way!

Around here I suspect the dryness of the season has something to do with the paucity of easily spotted under-rock denizens--probably in your neck of the woods too. It would be interesting to compare the same rocks under different conditions, e.g., a warm, wet spring, if such a thing were to come along.
