13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

California's central valley is right in the midst of the Pacific Flyway. Hundreds of thousands of waterfowl make places like the Merced National Wildlife Refuge their home during the winter months. Seeing and hearing a mass take-off of Snow Geese is something that needs to be experienced to be believed!
