I know a lot have ended up in MO. A friend hunted OK this morning and said there were thousands of birds in this particular spot. Normally it doesn't hold more than a couple hundred.

I should have a report early Friday morning about how many are in our area.

Lots of fresh birds here in SW Missouri and our season isn't open yet!Can't even begin to tell you how many snows I've seen high up and heading south.
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?

Atlantic flyway

The same weather system that pushed many ducks and geese out of the northern plains may also be pushing birds out of the North Eastern US area and the Maritimes and Eastern CA. So heads up as birds should be on the move. I bet the Chesepeake Bay area got fresh birds in. I heard cold/snow across MI, OH, IN. PA, NY, ON & QE CA, etc...

Also the fat lady has sung for N MN, ND, MB, SK. below zero temps across this area today. -20s in southern SK yesterday and the big water freezing up. Minimal #s for WI, S MN, SD, IA, & NE as most have headed south of there now.

It is currently 17 F (-8 C) where I am, and I have seen only a very small fraction of the birds I saw yesterday. There are still some hold out Mallards, but there are certainly more Canada's. I can't speak for the southern portion of MN, but I think the fat lady may have sung for 2/3 or it. Even some of the bigger waters are freezing over south of the metro area.
