Where's my flock?

I've seen only three white-crowned sparrows in my yard since my first sighting last Saturday. Those must have been passing through, because they didn't stay around.

For the last several years, a flock of at least 25 of these ground feeders have wintered with us. I'm wondering if the intense heat over the past couple weeks have had something to do with the delay in their arrival. 

Have you been seeing white-crowns? Let me know.
