    <P>During dry seasons in your area, have you observed birds going to water and if so what time of day was it? What do you think the prefered watering time is? </P>

    Most Birds don't have to rely on a water source.&nbsp; They will get enough moisture from the small plants and seedlings they consume on a daily basis.&nbsp; Crop fields are great for this during the first part of the morning when there is plenty of dew on the leaves of plants.

    <BR>I meant during dry seasons only. Probably is no set time. Thought I'd ask though. I've never been able to figure it out. I know when they roost over water they got to be drinking it, but sometimes where they are roosted I know there is no water and it plays in my mind trying to figure a game plan. <BR><BR>Another spot I hunt is a spring seep that I know the birds are using from all the sign, but hunting it is hit or miss, mostly miss as I've only bagged one bird there in 8 yrs. A whole flock came in about 11:30.<br> <br> <br>
