    I was gone last year, and with my memory (CRS) I'm not sure, but it seems like the birds are migrating earlier this year (not to mention trees turning). Anyone else think so?

    I'm in Fairbanks and live on a small lake between Creamers and the Tanana; at dusk and dawn there's stuff flying all over. I went down to the Delta Clearwater last weekend for some grayling, and there were geese all over the place.

    Pintails are pouring in here and in the central valley. White fronts are starting, but the ones here aren't the same population as you're seeing.

    Lots of mallards in Homer on the spit. I haven't been to my "go to spots" to check it out especially without a 4-wheeler, but there should be birds there. I may go check out some sandhill crane spots along the road until I get back to work in Cordova and have time to shoot ducks after work. Then I may explore another area of the state for birds. Until freeze up, there will be birds around.
