I am ahead of schedule and tired so I took the day off and just went birding at the Modoc National Wildlife Refuge near Alturas, California. It was a festival of waterfowl but many other western species were there also. I have several videos of some of these birds below. All of these birds frequent wetlands and marshes during one or more times of the year. Preserving wildlife refuges is critical to their survival. There was also a female Mule Deer with 2 fawns in the marsh.
