    Bark, bark...burrrr, burrrr.

    LR, I got your ducks...
    My homeboy flock of common mergansers (see previous post #50) has doubled in size today to fifty. Damn scary sight to see in front of your house, let alone flying on the deck in formation!

    Migrating geese flying overhead again this am, around 10-10:30...all heading south. No swans today this am.

    Saw a clear sh#t load of geese moving today. while hunting up the road. Stopped counting at twenty flocks and there were more coming down. Saw a few ducks mixed in with the geese. Pond was half frozen early, might help with ducksthis week.

    This cold front has brought down the birds of all kinds in mass. This is going to get ugly. Just like old times

    Seeing a lot of new geese and ducks in the Rapp area. Last Friday went over to the Eastern Shore and our guide commented about the great quantity of geese that had just arrived. Two parties of 5 each limited out within two hours. This morning I could see a lot more geese feeding in the fields next to my oyster operation.
