    Duck tornado

    Watched this flock of mallards landing in a pasture of my neighbors. He feeds sillage, corn and distillers grains on the ground. At one time they looked like black birds swirling around looking like a tornado. They roost on a watershed of the landowners. Yesterday it looked to me like over 500 mallards. I could be wrong and it may be a lot more. Zoom in on the picture if you can and you will see the cloud of mallards.

    We see those along with the goose tornado's around the cut milo fields way west of you. Pretty impressive to watch them come in.

    One frozen (literally) morning, Gauge and I got to see several duck tornadoes at Waurika lake. The birds were staged at multiple altitudes like aircraft returning to base. It was quite the impressive sight.

    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    Impressive to watch. Can't legally hunt them over a feed lot or a place where feeding live stock unfortunately. I've seen some guys hunt near the Cherokee feedlot and those mallards smell....................just like the standing water in a feed lot, like pure cow poo, not sure how they even eat them lol.
