I took a ride last night and it does not look good. Stoppped bythe HQ'a talked a bit and showed the kids all the bird mounts. Only 8 parties in both am and pm, no birds shot. We then went by the launch canals, broke ice, actually got out my tape measure, 7/8" ice before last night, so I am sure there is well over 1" this morning. I know it is about to warm up and rain monday, but I am afraid the birds have moved on. The count in the refuge is at an estimated 3,000, probably 1/10 of what should be there on a good year. I am already looking forward to next year........Just to bad this one is over, Already!
