Lots of Birds Migrating up the Mississippi River

And I have a few photos. This was actually the first day of three days in a row that I went over there. I started on pool 14, and then locked through and ran up river a ways and was shocked to see so many birds. Then I drove up to check above the dam in the backwaters to check out the birds there. The next day I returned to pool 13, and locked through down to pool 14, caught one bass and a few sauger and headed back up to pool 13. The third day I just stayed on pool 13. I went yet one more day to pool 13 two days later and most of the birds were gone. There was a lot of shooting in the bluffs which was enough to push the birds away, Turkey season.
