NotesStarted a little late in day and very warm day for season so even with light wind more birds in air than for previous surveys this year. Clear and sunny throughout. Recent weather oscillated from very warm to very cold. Standing waters still low from drought conditions, frozen but with melt water on surface. Flowing waters with some open areas; Missouri River open.
