Last Night's North Wind

Postby Frank Lopez » Thu Dec 12, 2013 10:14 am

Went out this morning and had a grand old time. Lots of new birds came in on the north wind last night. Mostly mallards, with a few wigeon. Had flocks of 3 and 4 dozen birds coming into the spread! Haven't seen that up here in years. Was done with mallards by 7:40 and got a wigeon at 8:00. I actually could have dropped a second wigeon, but I figured it was early, so I'd wait for another flight. The rest of the morning (until 9:30) all that came in were mallards.

Every once in a while, even a blind hog finds an acorn.

That's great to hear Frank, I haven't seen a mallard yet this season. Hopefully we will be seeing them in increasing numbers out here on the east end.

I guess our birds switched shores, it down right sucks on the southshore. Birds are using tiny way back creeks, I saw a few this afternoon but they did not want the creek I was in. Watched over 20 birds use a creek 80 yards away all afternoon. Now that is frustrating! :no:
No island leaft for Islanders like me.

Tim, if we work together, maybe we can keep the birds moving back and forth! :lol3:

They must be down your way, Tim. Every last one of them (and there were literally hundreds) were gone this morning!
