    Wow! What a difference those storms last week made. I went to a pass shooting spot I like last Monday morning and saw a few flocks of wood ducks and four mallards.

    I went again this morning and between first light and 7:50 a.m. had in the neighborhood of 600-700 wood ducks come over.

    Definitely some new birds moving in. Seeing huge flocks of geese in fields and small water bodies on a daily basis too. What kind of numbers are you seeing in Ionia County?

    I hope they are still around. Same weather all week. Could go either way.

    Good point. I’ve seen birds early in the week, gotten really excited, and ended up very lonely come Saturday morning before.
