lack of birds

Postby fido » Wed Oct 27, 2010 11:43 am

Anyone else notice the lack of birds around? We're lucky if we shot 30 birds this year, and thats with four guys. Now there seems to be nothing around. Might be the wacko weather we're getting, one day 4'C next day 17'C. Just wondering if anyone else is having the same issues? And we are hunting the Sudbury area.

Boy that's not what I want to hear. We usually get the birds from your area around the last of November. Haven't seen any great flocks of anything this far south yet. How about the swans, any come through yet? That's how I can tell the migration is in full swing when the swans come through about 2 weeks later the ducks and geese start to show up. So far this year it is a mirror of last year, hardly any birds at all, just the same local birds.

don't see too many swans around here, only four this year, but we don't shoot them, I'm pretty sure their a protected bird in these parts

They are protectd here also. Just one of the tools I use to check on the migration. Saw 4 medium size flocks his morning so I kind of answered my own question. They weren't flying very high so they must have stayed on larger lake farther up north of me.
