I Always Wanted to See Fields of Birds & Wow I Did

During the time between Christmas and New Year's I knew the Snow Geese would be in residence in a few of the Wildlife Refuges in California. With shelter-in-place rules in place we couldn't go as far as we wanted (like to see James!) so John suggested we do a day drive to Merced Wildlife Refuge and see the Snow Geese. Such an amazingly great idea. Here's what we saw.

Statistics first:

1 New Life Bird - Ross' Goose

57 Species

3 Species of Owls (in the daytime!)

7600 (rough estimate) individual birds
