You are correct on the Cans. When i waded in to retrieve birds and saw what they were I was very surprised. I had expected Blue Bills from the way the flock flew and looked. When asked what they were I said nuthing to I was back up on land and the look of Chicks face said it all. Cans in the Shrewsbury in December is not something I had previously encountered. Its 50/50 if they show up and when they do its usually the last week of the season. They do show up in large numbers at the pond next to St. Micheals in Long Branch in February and if I am in the area will stop and look. Cool bird on the water. Glassed the river this morning and all signs of birds, including Cans were negative.
Season was a little slow otherwise, a black here a buffie their, but Saturday made the year, any further birds are just gravy.
BTW Brant numbers appear to be way down

Can't speak for Dutch but my plow guy had my truck for a week, and I blew the motor on the way home from him. No wheels = no birds. So be it, I'm not one to complain.
