The last few weeks has been all about the filming and hunting, scouting new area has been put on the back burner just because of the volume of birds that are in our home turf. Scouting these massive flights has been all about the who, what, where, when and why. I’ve learned so much about cold weather behavior and the timing of monstrous flights.
My only regret so far is the lack of attention put on the divers, but my gut says we have not seen the big flight yet..
2020 has been a novel year for Mallards and Pintails, multiple flights of 5000-15,000 in the area changed my 2020 script but for the better.
It’s October 23rd and we are nowhere near through the big northern migration but the numbers in it sure make you wonder. Why Covid this year!!!!!!!!
I’ll keep you posted.
