Ducks UnlimitedĀ released its 2015 waterfowl forecasts, including the Pacific Flyway.

Here’s DU’s California forecast:

In California, populations of mallards and total ducks were well below their long-term averages, and poor waterfowl production was expected in this state. Drier wetland conditions also prevailed across much ofOregon and Washington this spring, but duck populations remained similar to last year’s estimates and their long-term averages in these states.

So it goes in drought- and fire-afflicted California.
