Dave Fronczak and I departed Calgary today to begin the 2009 survey of Southern and Central Alberta. I flew this survey for 8 years in the late 80s and early 90s It feels good to be back. The feeling is similar to making connections with an old friend that you haven't seen in awhile.  Today we flew south out of Calgary toward the U.S. border. Water and habitat conditions looked good in the southwest end of the prairies.  However, there was a late April/early May snow storm that appeared to delay migration slightly. As we continued our flight, the central to southeast portion of the prairies looked fair to poor.
