Birds Everywhere!!!!

Oops, you’re right Del. I have deer too and feed corn to them. Birds are fighting for perches many times throughout the day. I’ve been trying to coordinate the frenzy times With those major/minor  feeding activity tables but so far not much similarity. It gets REAL crazy at times.

I figured the birds would be more active today since we are supposed to get the blizzard of all blizzards tonight/tomorrow?🤔🤨 didn't have many today!!!!!!

I heard cardinals today and the murder of crows were rowdy on the river for no reason I could see.  Not really too big of deal but they caught my attention.

Crows will goes nuts if there is an Owl around.

We have had a large flock of robins, come and go on our one of our crab apple trees for the past couple weeks.  Saturday morning the chickadees and cardinals were singing quite loudly.

The cardinals, chickadees, and bluejays have been very vocal and active over the past week or so in my backyard.

I went from"can't afford to feed them" to about nothing! Happy to still have 4 or 5 pair of Cardinals though that stayed all winter. I think I might have seen a purple finch but not sure.

my best guess would be with most the snow melted there's more ground uncovered and they are finding food that way.

I've had Cardinals eating my dried mealworms.  There's plenty of sunflower and safflower for them.:confused: first time I've ever seen that!

I blew out the winter debris from under the bird feeder spread out on the yard. The grackles flock into the yard  and clean it up. I am glad to hear that the redwing blackbird had been sighted, the grackles won't be far behind. They can clean my yard and then go away 😉

    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.
