Another Winter With No Finches

Goldfinch in snow

For the third year in a row, I’ve had very few finches at my feeders this winter. I used to have clouds of finches, more like this, with plenty waiting their turn:

But for some reason, the visits have stopped. My thistle feeder has barely been touched. Cardinals are there, chickadees, even a flicker makes regular visits – but no finches. No goldfinches, no purple finches, no house finches. I miss the finches, and I’m really curious about why they haven’t shown. I’ve heard other people nearby say they have many, which makes it even more strange.
