So being a student at MSU, I pass the campus duck pond on my drive to class daily. Well the other day I drove by and this is what is saw.... :eek: ...Jaw dropped and couldn't believe it. So I had to walk by for a second look.

It is Feb, most likely heading north.
I have a friend in New Mexico that told me today the cinnamon teal are coming back up from Mexico already and the cranes are heading North too. Spring is coming.

one day back when i attended there were 4 banded mallards on that pond. we were going to bait them in with bread and net them at night. then we ran outa beer and sobered up :biggrin:

certain areas on the gallatin at times held a lot of woodies. We shot one Jan 15 one year on the last day of the season.

Last Day of the 1998 season- as full plumed as wood ducks get in MT. Shot over decoys on the Gallatin river by four corners
