Default Huge gathering of Ross' Geese

Last weekend I was shooting at the Colusa National Wildlife Refuge and a huge grind of Ross' geese settled in to the pond. There already were a lot of White-fronted geese, so the place was really alive with the cackle of geese.
Thanks for looking,
Steve

Thanks. Those big flocks always remind me of "The Birds" too.
