Biologists Sara Zahendra and Kent McFarland visit Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area, a destination spot for bird watchers, to see thousands of snow geese that flock there each fall. We explore why snow geese populations have declined and why that’s a good thing. You’ll hear the incredible din of the birds as they rise up from corn fields in a cloud of winged snow.

    I felt like I was tromping through the fields and riding along in the backseat. Great addition Kent and Sarah!
