Eleven hour drives can be long, boring, and tiresome, but birds can help pass the time. I've counted hawks and vultures, completed a drive list, and pitted state against state as I drove through.
But on a recent drive, I had a real special sighting - I was treated to flock after flock of migrating Snow Geese. I caught them out of the corner of the windshield and just had to pull over. With cars and trucks zooming past, I opened my sunroof to get a better view. Unfortunately, I only had my iPhone with me to record a few seconds of video and take a couple shots.
It was a wonderful sight, with the white and black of the geese cutting a beautiful contrast on the clear blue sky. And suddenly the drive didn't seem so long.
