Atlantic Canada

It has been a relatively warm summer, with variable water conditions due to localized rain events.  Water levels have been below normal in Prince Edward Island, below normal to normal in Nova Scotia, and normal to above normal in New Brunswick.  Environment Canada is predicting above-normal temperatures and normal precipitation for most areas, although parts of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia may be wetter.

Plenty of waterfowl broods are being observed on the landscape.  Broods of many species — particularly American black ducks, mallards and Canada geese — have fledged.

Despite variable water levels, wetlands are still providing good waterfowl habitat and are not at risk of becoming too dry.  Based on long-term weather forecasts, moisture should continue to be replenished into the fall.
