Often at this time of the year, a honking sound can be heard
high in the sky. The sound rings clean in the calm air, but the
source of the sound remained a mystery until the other day.
I went out to rake some tumble weeds when I heard the honking,
but this time it was close by and coming from more then one
source. I came in and got my cheap digital camera which also
has a video and audio recording capability. The video isn’t so
good, but in the audio you can hear two flocks merging and
their tone definitely changes. Then they get into a V formation
and head off.
