Video of Migrating Snow Geese At Emiquon National Wildlife Preserve

April 21, 2011

This is a video taken by Jane Garrison Ward and from her blog Walk With Me regarding natural areas in Illinois.  For those that enjoy wildlife and local natural areas, it is strongly recommended to visit her site.

The below video is remarkable and something people should see to realize the abundance of wildlife that can be found in this area.

As noted earlier, Monte was quite excited about the restoration of this area and would have greatly enjoyed the current status of the area and how large of an area the water has now covered.

Years ago, from time to time when a cornfield south of a Banner along the Banner Dike Road would become flooded during migratory periods, waterfowl would gather and produce a similar show, but not to the scale seen in J. Ward’s video from Emiquon.
