Return to Emiquon
I returned to the Emiquon early last Saturday, catching light on Thompson Lake before the sun actually broke through. And, on this fine morning, a full moon setting to the west. Still no major flocks of birds, other than the hundreds of coots that were present two weeks ago. Hunting season has started, but I imagine those fellows holed up in their blinds must have been bored as hell. Maybe it just has to get a bit colder up north to send our winged friends on their journey en-masse. Some colder weather/frost would likely help with the fall colors as well.
