Our senses were unprepared, yet delighted, for the numbers and the noise of Snow Geese as they took to the air as a flock. I have tried to present photos and videos that give you an inkling of what we experienced.
An aerial view would have shown how crowded the Snow Geese were.
This next video has a surprise at the end, if you dare to watch the whole minute. :)
Here is a series showing how Snow Geese fill the air at different times of day.
Now on to another bird that congregates in huge numbers, the Dunlin.
These two videos were taken during very cold and wintery conditions. The sound you hear is the wind.
Some Dunlin in flight photos.
My purpose in this Dawn Chorus was to give you a small sense of Ms. JG’s and my wonder at seeing such enormous numbers of two kinds of birds. I hope you get to see this in person. Coots form large rafts in our local waters, numbering in the thousands. Here are just two bonus photos of how they group together.
Now it’s your turn to add comments and photos — with large numbers of birds or individual birds. Sharing is the name of the game. Let’s see how big of a flock of comments we can get!
