Migratory Bird Report

December 2007
Breckenridge American;12/29/2007, Vol. 104, p8
The article presents reports on migratory birds in Texas for the week of December 26, 2007. The snow in High Plains contributed to better decoying action but made field conditions muddy when it thawed. Canada geese are decoying in hot feeding fields while snow geese are fair. In the North Zone, duck hunting is fair to good with diver ducks like scaup, ringed-necks and canvasbacks on Toledo Bend, Lake O'the Pines.
