    This is kinda cool (or really very cool): the migration on birdcast correlates to where there’s no precipitation on the radar.

    More birds around, snow geese high heading south. Mallards increase observed.

    A friend's grandfather lived his life and made his living in our coastal marsh and told him he'd been studying the ducks for sixty-some years and finally figured out he couldn't figure them out.

    I was way ahead of that curve. Never know until you go.

    I've tried for decades to figure it out.
    Way back at the beginning of this dumb ride I shot a lot of ducks in fog. I got the idea that foggy is the chit. Wrong. Had some luck in rain and got the idea that hunting in rain is the ticket. Wrong again.
    You just gotta go and hope. THEN SOME GUY ONLINE SAYS HES GOT THEM ALL FIGURED OUT. :doh
    The more you think you know the less you actually know they're random critters like me.
