    I was just down by Huffman and saw probably 10 different pairs flying at different times. It got my blood pumping. I was in AIT all last season so I haven't even pulled the trigger since 2007.

    Flock of about 100 lessers today in the field by the north end of Palmer airport.

    Plus the handful of Cottonwood Creek/Nugen's Ranch ducks that showed up from time to time throughout the winter.

    Time to get my layout boat project done.

    Also, anyone want to get rid of some mallard dekes ? Looking for about 6 good 'uns to fill out my spread.

    Cranes & snow geese moving through Wrangell this weekend...always a good sign that winter's grip is loosening.

    The old timers say that the hummingbirds ride on the backs of the cranes for their spring migration north.

    Here in Wisconsin, we've had Canadas and snows moving through in the tens of thousands. Really gets me going.

    Default Yup

    Ducks and geese on the Kenai flats - I didn't see any snows. Also, belugas and minkes in the mouth of the river. Must be some hoolies, capelin, or herring milling about. A guy could probably troll up a king off Ninilchik by now. Redoubt blew a smoke ring, too. Nice night for a walk on the North beach.

    Yeah I saw alot of activity this weekend down in Kenai, with mallards, and pintails, also some flocks of geese on the flats. There were also two coyotes out there catching mice. I also saw the whales some were coming and chasing fish right out of the water onto the bank and would lay their heads on the bank at low water. Looked like it was herring. I also had to geese lock up and land next to me while I was doing a stream assessment here in anhorage yesterday.
