Photo of Phil Thorpe.Another good day of flying and we’ve finished up the northwest parklands and will move to working the last 5 transects in the northeast parklands for the rest of this week. Wetlands were good to excellent on the upper two lines…lots of water on the landscape. Production from this area has the potential to be very good.

Lots of water on the landscape, unfortunately, the landscape doesn't have much cover for ducks.
