A trip along the northern most branch of the Danube Delta proved to be both educational and exciting. This time we traveled over 50 kilometers by the NOROC van on a road that was, in a word, unimproved. The road follows the Chilia Branch of the Danube river through some of the the most sparsely inhabited land in Tulcea County, and in the entire country of Romania. The charm of traditional villages, an occasional forest, and fields of corn, wheat, and barely were the setting for a spectacular show of wild geese migrating from Russia to Romania for the winter. Literally thousands of these geese could be seen landing in the fields in search of food. It is one of the largest bird migrations in Europe, and a rare sight to be seen. Dan Bandacu, the leader of NOROC's photography group, led the trip.
