This is (and always has been) my favorite time to look for birds. More variety than any other time of year and they look the best. Last weekend I saw woodies, mallards, blacks, Green-wing teal, ringnecks, A TON of buffleheads, some bluebills, 2 different kinds of mergansers, and a single drake pintail.
If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.
