I just wanted to share a few pictures from our visit to the national wildlife refuge a couple of weeks ago. It was very cold, but we enjoyed the huge flock of Snow Geese resting on the water, that slowly swelled in sound and then took off in a huge flurry of wings and voices. Nearby was a group of Sandhill Cranes. They took off singly or several at a time, bending forward then starting toward a run and then the take off with large slower flapping of wings. Despite the multiple layers of clothing, by children still were chilled, and were happy to take a respite in the warm van.
