What is the opinion of you guys on birds coming off the roost the morning after a very windy (20 mph+) night? Do they tend to hang on the limb longer the following morning, or is the windy night not an issue for their flydown the next morning? I appreciate any input. Thanks, and Good Huntin'

It was pretty windy Thursday morning for me west of Rocksprings. They flew down a little later but that was probably due to it being cloudy as well. I don't think the wind would make them stay on the roost later, but cloud coverage definitely does.

Thanks, DoveShooter. I had never paid any attention to the cloud cover. I appreciate the response. Best of luck this season.
