The pines are loaded with woodies in south zone. They fly for about 15 mins and the faucet turns off quick.

So true. I hunt two cedar swamp lakes at the back of my farm that are loaded with wood ducks. But you would never know it unless you are there for about 30 minutes before sunrise.

majority must be south. I been out every morning this week from 5:45 till 7:30 all different locations and birds are far and few. this morning I saw maybe 10 where normally there should be 50 to 100 but it was the most I saw all week. now that being said I havent been up to beaver swamps in sussex and warren

I'm no waterfowler by any means, but I have to believe this warm weather is just keeping them up north (as in, still north of us here in NJ), no??

 

I mean, if it is still warm for them in New England and Canada, why fly down here?

Hudson river didn't have much going on for last weekend's opener in NY. Nothing like 80 degrees and neoprene waders to bring out the fun in waterfowling.

Funny, I've been noticing more birds this year.  Maybe just because I notice more now.  Last week got some Pics of a large flock of Green Wing Teal (pics would suggest 50+) in addition to a bunch of woodies, black ducks, gadwall and some wigeon.  Also been noticing more 'skittish' mallards, ie. not the ones that come running up to you looking for bread.  Prior weeks I spied a handful of shovelers and had been seeing blue wing teal (although not lately, I think they are already on their way to south jersey).  

 

Full disclosure.. I saw many of these in non-huntable spots. But they seem to be trickling in. At least in North Jersey

 

Guess the true test will be tomorrow and next week.  Good luck to all
