The Prairie pothole region in Canada found in both Alberta and Saskatchewan, and also part of North America, is one of the primary nesting sites for most waterfowl. Overhead pictures of the area reveal that the site appears to be pelted with meteorites. I've never read anything about meteorites found in the Prairie Pothole region. Reminds me of viewing the moon through a telescope. I've read here (http://http://www.deltalandtrust.org/Chapter%204%20The%20Prairie%20Pothole%20region.htm ) where the potholes where glaciers left behind millions of depressions. Has this ever been debated?

Probably similar to the Carolina Bays (http://www.georgehoward.net/cbays.htm), oval "enigmatic wetlands depressions".

I'm left to wonder which continent Alberta and Saskatchewan are situated on if not North America. :D

Yes the Carolina Bay's are very interesting. Thanks for the link. The fact that the Venus flytraps are only found in the Carolina bays around Wilmington N.C. and new bacteria was also found is very interesting. (from a comet)

Kristophe, yes, Canada is part of North America...:shifty: my mishap after a 12 hour shift.
