I had two large groups (5,000 +) fly over the house last night right around dusk, I live about 7 miles West of the KS/MO border just outside of Pittsburg, KS. Also, this afternoon about 4:00 I saw a green neck collar on a snow 5 miles S of HWY 126 about 10 miles E of pittsburg. Not a huge group of birds only prob 300-400, but I could clearly see the green collar on its neck. Only had my binocs, so I couldnt read it. Hope somebody takes it, LEGALLY!!!

Saw another large group of prob 5,000-7,000 snows this afternoon. Roosting on a pond about 10 miles East of the KS/MO line, on 126 HWY E of Pittsburg, then flying south 2 miles to feed in a winter wheat field. Lots of birds in a field North of the roost pond, but I couldnt get close enough to guess numbers. Not as large a group as the first mentioned. I know this was a different group as I saw the others fly over my house again this evening. just about 30 minutes after watching the others go to feed.

Good Luck.

Just got back from a trip West of Kansas City we killed 63 on Saturday and 31 on Sunday most of the birds had pushed through by Sunday. On Saturday we saw 100's of thousands many up real high riding the winds back North and by Sunday there was probably only 10 to 20 grand left in the area. The high South winds were moving them through quick. The enitre ride back North we noticed Southern Illinois and far Northern MO were loaded.

I just came from Mound City on Sunday and they were LOADED! Some of the guides were estimating bird #'s between 7-800,000. However the temp sunday was 67 and now its in the 30's with temps continuing to fall through the week. Birds may head back south a bit or maybe sit tight.
