They're all hanging out in downtown Butler! Saw a couple hundred yesterday in a cut corn field just south of downtown.  Lots of mallards mixed in too.  Right next to the road.  
 
Probably roosting on the Connoquenessing where the poop plant discharge keeps the water warm.

Oh, and they were well within a safety zone too.  
 
Other than a couple early season goose hunts, and one duck hunt Thanksgiving morning this year, I haven't hunted waterfowl for a few years.  But I still observe a lot when I'm out and about, and there's a real nice roost lake a couple hundred yards out my back door.  Definitely a down year for bird numbers in the little slice of southern Butler County I've been keeping tabs on for 12 years.

 Taken from Jamestown Marina boat docks 5:41 pm,  01/21/ 2016.
 




 
 
Also saw, several sizable flocks of Mallards earlier in the day.
 
 
Really good thing......  they are all flying north, c'mon spring!
 
 
 
 
Sorry about the quality, cell phone thingy.

  The ones I saw today (rt 44 south ov 76/80) were headin' . A couple very large flocks standing formed almost perfect circles in some fields.

Yeah Ed, they were definitely north bound but I don't know if they were headin towards a night safe haven or open water somewhere.  The Shenango River is open but they were flying away from there, possibly they have a place where they go on the river during the day?
 
The pictures show one group than, a second (much smaller) group followed a few minutes later but, the sky was too dark for a good picture.  
 
If ya ask me, that was a lot of birds to say they were resident geese.

Mikastorm thank you very much for the support. I got to thinking (that's dangerous) after I posted the picture showing the geese flying north, maybe I was holding my camera upside down and, they was actually flying south.  Too much time sitting on the ice, me thinks.

I've read that big, bad Noreasters like the one that just happened will drive birds off of their wintering grounds and send 'em back to where they came from early sometimes.  The critters seem to know more about coming weather patterns than we do a lot of the time.    
 
Today, I noticed 2 good size mallard flocks - one of about 50 and one of about 150 - hanging out in little open corners of ponds I've been keeping an eye on all winter.  Usually they're there from the time things begin to freeze up; disappear for a few weeks during the coldest parts of January; and then are around again until the March thaw, but this is the first I've seen 'em in either place this year.  Dunno if they're late coming south, or early coming north.
