What started out as a rainy week ended rather nicely. It was chilly start to the week with rain and thunderstorms making the grounds soggy and muddy. By mid week, with the ground brimming with water, the sun started to break up the clouds. The sun finally made an appearance and with the wind rushing across the lands, it didn’t take long for the roads to dry and the temperatures to rise.
As for the work at hand, I was not able to make it into the field this week. However, there is always something to be done. The main priority, getting all of my data entered from the nesting survey. After a couple of days inputting data into GIS, I started to analyze the information at hand. Though it’s still early in the season and not all of the data collected, I can start to see areas that hold potential for sustaining Prairie Chicken populations.
