Saw the first of the big ducks this morning. Not many but a few.

West of Fort Worth

Anybody else seeing many moving in?

Been seeing some big ducks here but I'm not sure if their residents. HPMMU opens tomorrow and I'm excited!

I've had wood ducks on the creek behind my house the last 3 mornings. That's all I've seen anywhere so far.

Everything is late this year. Migratory song birds like white-throated sparrows and ruby-crowned kinglets are just now starting to show in small numbers at my feeders. No chipping sparrows or juncos at all.

Lovin these mid/upper 80's.............NOT bang
