Find the water. Maps are pretty good these days.
Pray for cold, not more water.
The birds have been pretty concentrated in certain spots which has been very good for us. This morning they are in every field around due to all the standing water. The water definitely spreads the birds out. Good thing there is a lot of eagles in the area and lots of birds. The eagles are constantly flying the fields, kicking up all the birds. We had 33 eagles in two trees yesterday.
