Game Birds and Surf

I have had some great experiences in the ocean here in New York this winter, with both good waves and sightings of game birds which I have never seen. Out in Montauk there are numerous species of waterfowl (sea ducks and eiders) and at times the birds are diving and feeding in the surf. Next year I plan on heading out with Brian from The Swampers, www.theswampers.com to actually hunt some of these birds.

Today there was not a cloud in the sky and the waves were firing. After surfing for a few hours I got out to find this little group of Atlantic Brant at the water’s edge enjoying the first sunny day we have had in a while. Oh yeah, in the background that’s a great left and yeah if you look closely you can see a guy in the tube.
