The following is a compilation of impressions, collected from Ducks Unlimited Canada field staff, of environmental conditions relative to breeding waterfowl. These observations are not based on systematic surveys, and are not intended to describe hunting conditions.
Conditions have improved in much of the British Columbia/Western Boreal Forest region, where snowfall has been above average in many areas. In the Prairie region, precipitation totals have ranged from 60 to 200 per cent of normal in Alberta, where spring runoff should be fair to good. Excellent spring conditions are expected in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, both of which have had above average snowfall. Although snow accumulations have been variable in the Eastern Region, habitat conditions remain good overall.
