kind of makes sense based on that geographic area....These reports are encouraging but my experience was not the same. I left Watertown, SD about 7:00 AM this past Thursday. Took Hwys 20 and 45 to Webster, then Hwy 12 to Aberdeen and then 281 up to Jamestown, ND. In those 200 miles I saw only a handful of birds along the road. Guess the road survey in August will give us a better picture.
