New Brunswick Survey Completed
The Maine and Atlantic Canada survey crew today completed Stratum 63, which corresponds to New Brunswick, Canada. Like Maine, New Brunswick endured a long, cold, and snowy winter with significant snow falling just 2 weeks ago. Rivers and streams in New Brunswick are still swollen with spring snow melt but the province is ice free and snow was observed only in the highest elevations in the northern portion of the province. Wetland basins, especially in the south, were full to flooded, and habitat conditions appear good for waterfowl production. If the weather cooperates, tomorrow we’ll survey Prince Edward Island and portions of Nova Scotia before overnighting in Halifax.
