Frightened Canada Geese

When I see a flock of Canada Geese rise up in a panic, flapping manically to a different lake in the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge wetlands, I look around for a bald eagle.  They don't care about the Red-tailed Hawks, or the Northern Harriers, but they are terrified of the eagles.  I caught the eagle on camera after it landed in the tree on the other side of the field at the end of the video.  Also, do you hear the other birds joining in the frenzied song?

Sounds like Sandhill Cranes to me.  What do you think?


  1. I don't know what sandhill cranes sound like, but they are definitely making their presence known. Oh, and I did hear the other birds joining in the frenzy!!

  2. I think the Sandhill Cranes come in at 17 through 22 seconds.
