Morning Fly Out

Shortly before sunrise, thousands of geese took flight almost simultaneously.

Experiencing the dawn fly out at this location is an awe-inspiring event.

There were 40,000 geese overwintering at Bosque last week. At dawn, they arose together as if on some primordial cue.

The sound they made as thousands of wings beat and the geese called out revealed a power of nature that stirred the soul.
