Spring has arrived at Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge, bringing with it beautiful landscapes and wildlife. Located just half an hour outside of Fallon, or an hour and a half from Reno, the federally managed wildlife refuge offers incredible views with easy access for all ages.
Most, if not all, of these images below were taken in less than a 5 minute walk, all on flat even terrain. Birders and wildlife enthusiasts have the opportunity to view nesting blue herons, nesting swallows, black ibis, great horned owls, pelicans, and more.
Those interested in landscapes can see some truly beautiful vistas that can range from idealistic to extremely dramatic. While Stillwater provides beautiful sights throughout the day, late afternoon and sunset bring a special feel to the refuge.
Birds singing in the setting sun while the air cools around you is an experience worth having, and sharing.
