I just spent a few days in the north delta, including the weekend. Those that have water are holding a few birds. Some have a decent number in fields, but I did not see any numbers significant enough to make me go "wow." We have more birds in our rice than in our beans. From what I can tell, they have not filtered into the brakes in significant numbers, but that again could be due to lack of water. Our brakes look like chocolate pudding with dead gar sprinkled on top. I hope that everyone gets some rain to hem up some water to keep ducks around. Good luck to everyone on Friday, and y'all be safe.
