last week i was fishin lake fork up around dallas and we were in the back of a cove with a big island in the middle we couldn't get all the way to them because the stumps were so thick but there must of been between 100-250 duck back there we could see mallards wigeon teal gadwall, it surprised me i figured most of the ducks would have already started making there way north

I'm a little surprised to be seeing ringnecks, bluebills and ruddy ducks this late.
There always seem to be some gadwall widgeon and, of course, bluewing bringing up the rear in late March.
