It’s Spring and the snow has been replaced by snow geese at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.The trees and flowers are blooming again and, as if on cue, the birds are making their return just in time for the Harney County Migratory Bird Festival. Great news for the thousands of birders expected to come out for Bird Fest and other visitors; the area around Refuge Headquarters and the on-site Museum are now reopened to the public. The Visitor Center/Nature Store is expected to reopen later this Spring.Read the blog
The staccato call of the greater sandhill crane announces the beginning of spring at the refuge. Cranes are a common sight strutting across meadows in search of their next meal.
