Snow Geese
The Swarms

1-minute, 45-second video (15.3-meg file)
March 8, 2009

This is the second of my two videos of snow geese in action at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, Pennsylvania, which is a key staging point for the spring migration of snow geese. They arrive there in the tens of thousands. Over 80,000 geese were at Middle Creek on Sunday, March 1.

It opens with a goosestorm forming and then a major swarming occurs.

The video is intended for anyone with high-speed access, and it starts automatically.



Note: If you'd like to see the video again (after the end credits are shown), right click (or for a single-button Mac mouse, Control-click) on the movie and then click play. (Watching this one again after the initial download eliminates any unfortunate pauses.)

Video note: The video was taken on Sunday, 1 March 2009, on an old Sony digital-8 camcorder; digital footage was captured and edited in Pinnacle Studio 10; and a mp4 file was converted to Flash by DVDVideoSoft's free converter.
