I worked the last two days at the hunter check station. Yesterday was sunny and warm which resulted in mostly low counts for the hunters. The birds were just flying too high until late in the morning, and most hunters had already left. Those that stuck it out, found a late morning influx of Northern Pintails.
Today, it was in the mid sixties to start the day out. Rather warm for early morning. It was cloudy and as the predicted cold front began to move through, there was rain and high winds. At one point, the temperature plummeted about 20 degrees in 15 minutes! Once again, the hunters that stuck it out filled out their limit. I tried to get some more feather photos while the sun made a brief appearances, but they all turned out blurry. Sure wish I had a macro lens.
Late this afternoon, I went outside to add some water to the fresh water tank and turn off the water hook-up. It’s supposed to get down into the 20’s for the next two nights, so I’m not taking any chances with a frozen hose. I guess winter is back.
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
