VIDEO IS FROM WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 6TH.THIS VIEW OF THE WEATHER IS WHAT WE HAVE DEALT WITH ALL WEEK
As of this update (10/8 - 12:00 pm) it is currently raining again.
The birds are looking and acting good right now. We do have the late returning birds on a higher fat mix of feed for a few days. We have had rain off and on yesterday and pretty much rain all day today. If possible we will get a trainer in either tomorrow or Tuesday depending on the weather. We should see a break in the rain after today. As of now, if we had to pick a day for the 225 race it would be Friday. This day shows to be a SW wind at 5-10. The days before and after the wind is much stronger. Hawks continue to chase the birds daily making things unbearable for them and for us. Tomorrow we will begin sending out information about the events for race weekend as well as times & locations. As always please feel free to call or email. Hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday.
We are searching for answers as to what happened today on the 180 Mile Race. We will not throw excuses out there if they are not answers. The birds continued to come right on line today with very few coming from the North. Temperatures were warmer today then they have been in the past 2 weeks and birds had a Southeast wind. We do not feel the wind was strong enough today to be a factor. Needless to say we are disappointed with the returns as we are sure many are. We of course expect to see many more return today. We will continue to monitor birds coming home and update again tomorrow.
