I have been out getting rid of this white stuff from my sidewalk and driveway for the past 4 hours, and it has been non stop whites, blacks and whatever flying the river way up high and heading south. I sure wish the weather would have cooperated for a few more weeks, but that is ole mother nature. It would have been fun to see how many birds would have piled in?? I wonder how the ditch chickens are holding up? My guess is that they took it hard. If you deer hunters see lots of those ditch chickens frozen dead post up.

My guess they are piling into Sand Lake big time
actually the ones that have been on there have been flying like 15 miles to feed, or all the way to aberdeen. going out tomorrow hopefully to get some new migrators. and the snows been here for about 3 weeks so they have been here for a while in SD.

My Dad drove back to MN this am and confirmed alot of migrators heading south. He said there were alot feeding though this am. So, a few may be staying - although the temps may force them out.

He said the mallards were absolutely thick in the field!

Heck, might as well post the gps coordinates. In the future, I would recommend saying SE SD rather than posting an exact location. Too many internet scouters out there.

Send him a PM, or message directly and politely educate him then!

A few migrators yesterday moving through, otherwise it's pretty quiet compared to Saturday.

We had birds coming in all weekend, the roost we hunted off of Sunday finally froze over. The birds were sitting on the ice.

I was told this morning that Sand Lake is froze over, I haven't confirmed it yet though.

Hunting was generally good, although they are very flocked up.

Don't get me wrong, the hunting on Sunday was outstanding to say the least, but seeing that many swans in one day this early was pretty scary. We don't see that many usually for another week or two atleast. TONS of migrators seen Sunday (Ducks of all variety, Canadas, Snows and Swans)
