Ducks away…

Mostly Mallards and Sandhill Cranes at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico

Snow Geese panics are one of the spectacles that draws people back to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife in New Mexico each fall and winter. When 2000 geese come up off the water all at once and circle it is something to see, and to hear. This looks like a Mallard panic but it is not. These Mallards were just all inspired to move down the field at the same time. They are flocking birds, and when one (or at least a few) go, they all tend to go.
