Ankeny Wildlife Sanctuary in the Willamette Valley of Oregon
This sanctuary is one of three in close proximity to one another in the Willamette valley of Oregon (where we live). Ankeny is about 45 miles south of Portland and is a major winter-over for migrating birds. Up to 25,000 geese at times (we didn't see that many but who's counting). This trip was taken on 15Feb04.
