Complex Swarm: Every Which Way
55-second video (5.5-meg file)
|March 6, 2011|
This 55-second video is of a lesser swarm (or goosestorm), and featuring beautiful direction changes, at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, Pennsylvania, where the snow geese gather in the tens of thousands. The video was taken when there were an estimated 60,000 snow geese. It's more the heart of a swarm than an overall view. (For an overall view, look at my 80-second clip from 2010.)

Video note: The video was taken on Friday, 4 March 2011, on my old Sony digital-8 camcorder; digital footage was captured and edited in Pinnacle Studio 12; and a mp4 file was converted to Flash by DVDVideoSoft's free converter.
