Thunderous Takeoff 1

Early each spring, thousands of Snow Geese stop off in Delta, Utah on their 3,000 mile journey home to Canada's northwest territories. They rest during the day on this small lake. The flock take off in unison to feed in the fields each evening. Sometimes it sounds like a muffled freight train.
