Time Event
Gray Lodge State Wildlife Area
Today we took the dogs for a walk at Gray Lodge State Wildlife Area, where over a million waterfowl spend the winter. Here I am with the dogs.

Supposedly, about 60% of the waterfowl population in the Pacific Flyway and about 20% of the waterfowl population in North America spend the winter in California's Central Valley. According to this, 95% of Central Valley wetlands have been drained or filled in over the past 100 years. As a result, waterfowl have become increasingly dependent upon refuges such as this one. But although we did see plenty of birds there, the place did not actually present very good opportunities for photographing the birds - at least not today. I've gotten much closer to birds, and gotten better bird photographs as a result, on the American River Parkway in Sacramento than I did at Gray Lodge.

Many landscape photographs, and a few of us and birdsCollapse )

Current Mood: satisfied
