a snow geese flyover at the Ladd S. Gordon Waterfowl Area

A flyover: when hundreds of snow geese all of a sudden rise up into the air and fly over you in a dense cloud. The sound is amazing — a mix of cacophonous squawks and the whoosh-whoosh of flapping wings — and a flyover always brings me to my knees. One of the most awe-inspiring experiences I’ve ever had.
