Migration corridors between properties inadequate. Open fields highways, dogs, neighboring properties not conducive either for all habitat needs?
Many variables, take a good look around and see what's missing. Correct the problem if you find one...certainly I would think that if you make your property just as attractive that some birds would make it their home. They do wander around and if they find what they like they should set up shop?
Good luck in your detective work.
