I have him hold the point, and I walk up and flush the birds. Then after they flush, he usually goes over and checks out where they flushed from.

What a great opportunity to be able to expose your pup to so many birds even in the off-season. I look forward to more stories and pictures.

Soon the Hungarian partridges will be paired off and nesting, and the ducks and geese will be nesting, and we will make a conscious effort to avoid the nesting areas. But as of today, the Hungarians are not paired off yet, and the ducks haven't even arrived yet, so we have no worries about disturbing nesting pairs. The field that we run in is in city limits, so there is no hunting here, and the only threat to the birds is the coyotes, and I have been killing as many as I can when I find them outside of the city.
