Caption: The Kern Valley Wildlife Refuge in California's Central Valley was created as important resting and feeding grounds for wildfowl migrating along the pacific flyway. After four years of unprecedented drought, the water shortages in California are critical. The reserve has received only 40% of its usual water, with the result that most of the lake beds are dried up and desiccated, leaving the birds nowhere to go.
