In all my 74 years I've never seen a LARGE migration flight of Woodies ... until today. I was out running the three dogs around 7:30 this morning and when we came back to the back porch, I heard the familiar sound of a Woodie or two overhead. Looked up and there was one large group of maybe 30-40, followed by several smaller and then a few larger groups, all flying from N to S over Denison CC. I wouldn't call it a "grand passage", but for someone who's hunted ducks for almost 60 seasons, it was the largest flights of Wood Ducks I've ever seen. Maybe good portends for next week's opener.
