Flight of Snow Geese

Sandhill Cranes

Snow Geese

Mountain Blue Bird

We awoke to 20 degrees this morning and clear skies. At sunrise we were at a pond which had several hundred sandhill cranes waiting for sunrise and their first flight of the day. The sunrise provided a very nice illumination of the cranes first flight of the day all with a background of a full moon. Later in the day we watched thousands of snow geese feed and raft up on a pond. It is a mystery on what cues the geese to in mass take flight circle the pond and in mass return to the pond. I was in a great spot to capture this phenomenon in a frame filled picture. Saw our first western blue bird of the year.
