The Mystery of the Missing Merops

As early as October each year, we'd find our colony invaded by swarms of small green bee-eaters (M. orientalis), like I mentioned last year in this post. They were especially fond of one tree one road away from us, and they' d raise quite a din settling down for the night, every night of the winter.
They're missing this year. Just the odd ones are here but nowhere near the hundreds we saw last November.
