Waterfowl Migration: Teal continue to dominate coastal fields and flats. More pintails, shovelers, and green-winged teal showed along the coast this week with the cool front. Water continues to be an issue for waterfowl, as ponds that were pumped for teal season are quickly evaporating. More birds have shown on bay shorelines earlier, probably due to the absence of water on the high ground. Flights of teal have readily buzzed hypersaline shorelines in the morning hours. Marsh ponds have been dry from the drought and even drier due to abnormally low tides for this time of the year. Shallow flats on East Texas reservoirs have held birds. More specklebellies should show this week. Duck and goose season opens Nov. 5.
