This is the same spot as the last post, although in this one I left out all the Refuge visitors!
This area was historically an agricultural area and water is intensively managed on the Refuge. Irrigation includes numerous dikes and other water control structures that provide water to many divers wetland habitats ranging from shallow wet meadows to open water. The Refuge includes pumped wells, Artensian wells and irrigation canals some dating to the 1880's.
Here you can see some of the sandhill cranes having breakfast.
