Saw a couple of small flights just west of there between Big Spring and Stanton on Sunday. They're filtering in slower this year it seems.

There is a large flock on our hunting lease field in Young county right now and I saw several hundred of them in Bailey County last week.

I saw several small flocks last weekend in our lease CC. Two days before , they Flew low enough that my game camera on the deer feeder picked them up. We have nothing for them to eat. Our placed is all mesquite’s and grass. Would love to get some if they fly in that low again and I’m in the stand hunting.

We were at our lease from Wednesday until today. Saw some groups of 15-20 flying over. They were heading to neighboring property where they had wheat planted. Nothing like prior to the freeze of ‘21. They used to roost on the barber reservoir north of town. They had a valve crack from the freeze I believe and drained all the water. Hasn’t been the same since

They have been pretty steady flying over Sweetwater the past few days.
