    Default Is it time too start the woodcock watch thread?

    so I know its real early but saw my first Grackle today. Typically I use them as the herald of the woodcock as they seem to show up a week before them.
    With this freak weather think it has wildlife a bit confused.
    In any case on watch with eager anticipation for their return.

    Nice to hear but keep them down there for a bit longer. Hate for them to came up just to get blasted by another shot of cold.

    Haven't ran into any yet but haven't been hitting usual coverts. Been shed hunting behind our house and found some spots that look like they might hold birds moving through. Time will tell. Thought I could hear them in the evenings last year. Only been here about a year and a half so I intend on finding out this spring.

    Headed to one of our training covers down by the lake today. Snow is all gone there. Report to follow, if I can keep track of this crazy youngster I'm training. :-)

    Had the dogs out in decent cover Sunday south of Barrie and no encounters. This week should knock down most of the snow. Any day now.
    I 'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Gee I thought I was anxious. Had the dogs out yesterday in some of the spot around here and if they are not there they are not here yet. Did see my first redwing today and I though I haven't seen one yet dad claims to have seen a robin also. So soon it'll be time.
