    A lot of talk about birds not coming down to us yet. This latest strong cold front along the West should have pushed some birds. Anybody notice?

    The black bird flight really improved after the frost.

    If you mean ducks, no, not at all.

    Yes - I seen some mallard response [as in positive] that is quite different than the prior week. Birds are flying in mixed flocks also - which is another hint to me.

    I shot 2 just because they kept coming in to my face at 5 yards. Ended up with 3 teal, 2 ring necks and a mallard in my hour shoot before work this morning so can't complain. They go into the pepperoni stick pile anyways
