Seeing that pic is like finding your older brothers playboy
If you look close there's at lest 9 adults. That was the first thing I started looking for because if there was Zero Blues in it it would mean that this flock would likely mean very little to the central Flyway but then I started spotting them so it definitely is a decent sign.
You beat me to it. I had 8 or 9 I counted. This ratio is right about what we see in the west central flyway here in far western Nebraska.
Yeah it classic NM/Texas panhandle type setup. They used to have a very distinct separate spring Flyway here in North Dakota that they used in the spring just east of Bismarck but now the main Flyway has shifted quite a bit West so you can no longer tell the difference. But occasionally if the weather works out right like it did last year they become very evident again when you see a hundred birds fly over and there's only six or seven Blues mixed in.
Map from post above comes from
Green to yellow are above seasonal,,, white is near seasonal and blues are below seasonal.
Most of the artic is the near to above seasonal temperature range for the last 60 days, which would essentially be the nesting / rearng season!
things look excellent for queen maud and dewey soper populations.. even western hudson bay/churchill looks better than first reported. time will tell though
Three reports from the Arctic that I've seen so far are very encouraging!
Here's a recent update with picture of the goslings in NU.
Will there ever be an "Official" hatch report? If so, when does that come out? Thanks
Yes, there will be. However, the official speck population report is not from nesting reports/data. Speck data is population count from migratory flyaway days from LAST YEAR! Snow population data is better and more timely than Speck data, but has significantly missed what hunters actually saw over the past few seasons. I've found that field reports from biologists, residents, and natives to be much more accurate.
