Karen BollingerToday we completed stratum 39 in southwestern Manitoba and should complete stratum 35 in southeastern Saskatchewan during our next day of survey flying. Both the amount of water and the number of ducks in these areas are phenomenal this year. Water basins are full and many are flooded out of their banks. Sheet water is abundant as well.
