I went back for more punishment, and had a very interesting encounter with a small flock of birds in the same area where the acted so uninterested before. I had set up a feeding hen decoy on the edge of the right of way and called very quietly and sparingly... mostly just clucks and purrs. I caught movement in some brush and out steps two hens about 10 feet from the decoy. One hen walked towards the decoy and stared at it for a minute or so.... she suddenly started putting and dancing in circles...lol. The hens moved away from the decoy and straight into my lap. Now, I am locked down, can't move an inch. So, now the rest of the flock steps out into the right of way about 30 yds away and ease away. The hen starts this real fast series of semi-yelps....over and over again... and herds the flock away. Of course the six toms that were part of the flock (4 jakes and 2 nice birds) were out of range before I could bat an eye. So... by my count it is now the pea brained birds 2 and the advance intelligent human 0..... this is going to be a long season.
BTW... I looked at the Willow Ridge Calls, but could not find a way to purchase? Is there another website?
