This film is a follow-up to Henry Ganzler’s previous film, Wetlands’ Wildlife - The Sacramento Valley. Like that film, Birds in Sacramento Valley’s Winter Wetlands was filmed in the Gray Lodge Wildlife Refuge, the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge, the Llano Seco Wildlife Refuge, and the wetlands and rice fields in and around the counties of Butte and Colusa in California. The new film gives viewers a close-up look at many of the migratory birds that come from as far away as Siberia and the Arctic Circle to make their homes in the Sacramento Valley's wetlands each winter. Included are Snow Geese, Ross's Geese, Greater White-Fronted Geese, Canada Geese, Tundra Swans, Sandhill Cranes, Bald Eagles, and several other species not included in the first film.
