Snow geese...



This is from today...out by the strip pits we always go to.  They were just simply amazing.  We probably stood there at least 30 minutes watching them.  We were heading to a little restaurant and by the time we came back, not a single one was anywhere near.


Of course I was looking into the sun, or close to it.  I was happy with the videos and shots when I thought about that.


I could not get a photo to do them justice...


I am glad to have finally got to be this close to them...and get to witness and hear them for myself.

I use to live in Sidney, Iowa and could drive to the Missouri River and see this same kind of migration. The sound is something you can barely describe. I am sure you had a wonderful time there.
