Most Birds don't have to rely on a water source. They will get enough moisture from the small plants and seedlings they consume on a daily basis. 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>
