Mississippi Flyway North Matt Ward 11/02/15 Nw. Illinois Above average temps with highs near 70 lows near 50 and bright sun shine This last week has been stale to put it best. There are a few localized pockets of ducks and geese around but the warm weather has them less than active. Birds seem to be dabbling all day and not going to fields to feed. With warm weather projected all week it doesn't look like they're patterns are going to change much.
