Yesterday I put $52.00 worth of gas in the car. First time I’ve ever gone over $50.00 on a fill-up. $3.47/gal. That’s slowing me down a bit, but there’s plenty of good birds close to home.
The main attraction has been waterfowl, of course, with the Thomas Point Swans and ducks in big numbers, but we’ve gotten some thawing recently, so other ducks are showing up in the coves. The Canvasbacks were largely driven out by the ice for a while.
Possum Point has been largely non-productive, which is consistent with other places in this too-warm season. Maybe February will bring us some sea ducks.
