I have to admit that I'm a sucker for this time of year. The fall has it's foliage and actual duck hunting seasons, but the birds are more relaxed in the spring and you really get to see them. I was out on the St. Croix River a few days ago and spotted a flock of about 30 canvasbacks. They are all duded up in their breeding colors too. It seems like most of the birds we shoot in the fall here are still pretty dark. I envy the southern hunter... the birds are usually pretty nice looking down there. How 'bout the rest of you guys? Seeing any birds?
