Shawn BaylessAll the survey transects in South Dakota are complete, all but the northern-most transects in North Dakota are complete, and we've flown two days in southeastern Montana. Overall, wetland habitat conditions are fair-to-good, with a few areas in southern SD and southeast Montana rated as poor. We are currently grounded in Baker, MT, due to high winds, so we took the opportunity to complete scheduled maintenance on N704, the mighty Supercub.
