 Taken at face value M-A snow crows suffer the most ...

The NOAA analysis of Rutgers' Global Snow Lab data does not account for the different categories of La Nina episodes (weak ... moderate ... strong) and it has an end date of 12 years ago.  Since then ... there have been three La Nina winters - '10 / '11 ... '11 / '12 ... and '17 / '18.

'10 / '11 - well above average (moderate La Nina)
'11 / '12 - well  below average (weak La Nina)
'17 / '18 - above average (weak La Nina)
