Where are the Ducks?

These photos were taken last weekend at the Schell-Osage Conservation Area near Schell City, Missouri. I remember once coming here and there were thousands of water fowl flying it creating immense moving clouds of birds. This time there were very few. I remembered it was this time of year so we stopped by the headquarters so I could ask. They were wondering too! Normally on this weekend they would have 34,000 birds. The attendant said they counted just 3,400. They are as puzzled as I was. So the question remains...where are the ducks?

It is sad that this is the way that most animal life is going, us humans are the only ones increasing in numbers at the cost of them :-(
