Any news on rainfall in the northern breeding grounds for the pacific flyway?

Hey Stalns, how's it going? I flew into Sacramento yesterday and the rivers are over flowing into the fields. Spoke to one local and he said just wait until the snow begins to melt. The Sacramento valley looked like a marsh.
we've been getting lots of rain here in NW Oregon lately. (finally) not sure what impact it is having on the local breeding populations, but it sure is nice to see some barren ground covering up with water.
I was wondering the other day about where the ducks lay there eggs. (how far from shore?) All of our resivours have come up at least 10 to 30 feet in the last couple weeks. Are the ducks smart enough to see into the future if they use these areas to nest year after year? or do the eggs get flooded?

anyone know?
