The little russet fellers are starting to make an appearance here in central Ma.

Tell them to stay put. It is not fit for them in this country yet.

I must say this is one of my favorite threads to look for each spring. Not that I am rushing the seasons.

Where two weeks ago I had 11 flushes in a couple hours of  hunting quail in overlapping habitat the following week had  no more doodles.  They're coming your way.  Gil

Robins are coming back into NH so the Woodcock will not be far behind them

Patterning my shotgun on Saturday in the upper Shenandoah Valley, there were Robin's everywhere.  I was surprised, given temps of 46 degrees.  Going to be cold and windy later this week.  I have a feeling they will be moving around a good bit if the weather starts to yo yo.

I’m thinking it’s too early for them to be here. Still some winter left, though won’t feel that way this week.

Just got back from a walk with Chance my Springer. I saw a Robin. There always seems to be a few about way to soon. This one is a big hurry.

I received a text picture last week of a dog on point in southern NH, the quarry was a woodcock.

Lots of bare spots on the ground and we did not get a hard freeze so the ground is still soft I have been seeing worms after it rains so they should do just fine

I’ve lived in Maine for over 30 years. Maine winters wax and wane and will create a false sense that spring is coming....like right now with two days of over 40° temps. Then the Maine winter pounds you down emotionally and physically through March. I’m not falling for it this year. Robins or no robins.
