I'd never seen or heard wild geese before. Have you ever? A fantastic noise, like a lot of women at a cocktail party in the sky, tumbling over each other for the best place in the air. The oddest & most impressive nature note for years.

At the start of the fall semester in 1979, a friend and I drove down a street near the UT campus in Austin where a number of sorority houses were located. They were all having lawn parties for rush week. The sound was incredible, it was just like a rice field full of geese.
