This epic migration of snow geese that was captured in the prairie pothole region of North Dakota is estimated at over one million birds.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Mountain Prairie Region posted this video of snow geese just north of Woodworth, North Dakota that was at least one mile long and several hundred yards wide. While the video is only 30 seconds long, it took the videographer all that time to tape the birds to just one end of the flock!
Video credit was given to Rick Bohn from late March, 2016. The USFWS post stated that the photographer said it took him 15 photos in all to capture the giant flock before grabbing his video camera to take this amazing video.
Central North Dakota is a key region for migrating waterfowl and one of the best places you can go to visit and see it all for yourself.
Added in was a very useful link to the Ducks Unlimited migration tracker to follow the move north and keep everyone updated as to which waters are open and where birds can be most readily seen. Birds will also visit places like the Tewaukon National Wildlife Refuge numbering near one million.
Thanks to the USFWS for posting this amazing video for all to see!
