[Tweeters] Low yellow-rump numbers?

This year I vowed to keep a yard list, and I have been doing so, and while
the warbler count is respectable for in-city Seattle, I haven't had a single
yellow-rump yet.

This is a little weird; in past years I've had dozens and dozens of them.
This year, I've had a handful of orange-crowns, a yellow (new for the
yard!), and just last week a beautiful male Wilson's warbler (not new, but
pretty neato-keen anyway). But no YRWA! Has anyone else noted any decrease
in the numbers, or am I just unlucky?
