Reelfoot Lake in Western Kentucky is home to thousands of birds, and the Reelfoot National Wildlife Refuge. Winter is one of the best seasons to see hundreds of thousands of birds that use the sanctuary as a stopping off point for their migratory journey. Drew Wirwa, the Wildlife Manager, gave us a glimpse of those birds and the beautiful place called Reelfoot Lake.
