John Rayfield and I started the 2009 survey in Watertown, NY, just south of the Quebec border. For the past 18 years I have been flying survey routes in the Canadian Prairies and Parklands of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The boreal forest in this area is very unique and different from what I am used to surveying. Spring timing appears normal. The trees are leafed out, ducks are paired up and the water is open. Refuges in northern NY report normal waterfowl migration timing this year. This area had a good, wet winter and fall with normal spring precipitation. Water conditions look good so far.
