Merced National Wildlife Refuge

The Merced National Wildlife Refuge is located about ewight miles south of Merced. It consists of just over 10,200 acres of mixed wetlands and native grasslands. Tens of thousands of geese, cranes and wat3erfowl winter in the refuge. Many specie of birds nest here and there is also a wide variety of mamals that live in the refuge. There is an auto tour route as well as several hiking trails. These pictures were taken in the early fall. There have been plenty of birds every time that I have visited, although winter is the best time to see the huge numbers of birds.
