This has been an absolute brutal winter for waterfowl. The sub zero nighttime temps and lack of food availability due to the ice and snow have left many ducks and geese starving and unable to cope with the weather. On the plus side, it means some hungry hawks and other predators have some food available to help them thru this winter.

Yday 5-ish the Redhead gave great looks in the channel. Lots of mergansers, a couple Gadwalls. But what's with all the dead geese on the ice? About 6 carcasses. Sent from my iPhone
