My camera isn't that great, but the photo should give you a small glimpse of the vast numbers of migratory birds that pass through Nebraska. The sound is so loud, it almost sounds mechanical, rather than natural. At night, letting the dog out into the yard, the noise is overwhelming (in a wonderful way).
The photo was taken from my side yard after the geese began flying off from the wetland restoration area just to our West. Seeing how many birds visit those wetlands now almost makes it worth enduring the increasingly awful mosquito infestation each summer.
