    Went scouting today and found a very decent flock of black & Mallards in a small pond. They spooked and flew off.

    My question is do these flocks normally return to the same area after they been spooked? Or do they avoid the area totally?

    Was thinking of setting up there tomorrow at first light.
    Any input is appreciated. Thank you
