Hundreds of "Honkers!"

"There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds... 
There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter..."
-- Rachel Carson

And with Fall Migration ... I am assured that winter will be arriving after Fall!  In the meantime, there is something magical about snow geese during their migration.  It's such an incredible sight!  Perhaps it's how the sun reflects off of their white plumage, giving them a stark contrast against a blue sky or a golden stubble field.  Perhaps it is the incredible sound of hearing hundreds of them communicating to each other.  Or maybe, it's just because their migrations mark another journey and another season on the calendar for us ... and at that (WINTER) ... we look forward to their return!
