    Starting to see a few geese flying. Seen a few flocks in cut silage fields. Also noticed they're not flying till about 9 or 10 in the morning, and right at sunset in the evening

    Local geese moving around either headed to food lion parking lot or the post office. Local mallards moving early and dropping in the cess pool at mcdonalds. Heavy crop of fries floating on the surface,along with the occasional biscuit. Still have not seen any blue wingers yet..

    That are going to die in a few more weeks for if they fly (over me) they die ( of a storm of black cloud # 1 ) . Yep I have good numbers on my hunting grounds and flying late morning.

    I'm seeing big groups of dove here. Way more than I have seen in recent years. As many as several hundred on a few consecutive stretches of power lines. All around crop fields that haven't been touched yet.

    Geese started moving around on pattern about two weeks ago.
