1st GoPro video, good shots and a good day. 4 shells for one bird.
This peregrine falcon was hunting for prey, as he flew into a flock of pintails at Colusa National Wildlife Refuge. The larger white-fronted geese in the foreground, however, do not seem to be impressed much by the peregrine and they stay through the entire clip. Video: Cindy Sandoval/USFWS
A great place to spend some time. They have a visitor center, restrooms, walking paths, auto tours viewing platform.
Tenth thousands of Snow geese and other migratory ducks and birds came to Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge, near Willows, off I-5, every Fall. They fly-out at sunset in orderly waves after waves to the nearby agriculture field for food. It is so wonderful to see and to hear those God's beautiful creations at the refuge ! They shall be here until next January or February. Do not miss your chance to experience the marvelous God's creations this season!
Visited on our way north. Most of the birds left ahead of us. Even then a wonderful variety and place.
Mostly Snow Geese (Chen caerulescens) shown at Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge. But if you look closely, after the camera zooms in, then pans to the right, at about the 57 second mark, you will see three Ross's Geese (Chen rossii) at the right of the screen.
