Have you ever seen a v-shaped flock of geese fly overhead and wondered, why do they do that? In this video I share some information explaining this interesting behavior. I also talk about the other species that also fly in v-shaped flocks, and dispel an oft repeated myth.

If you enjoy the videos I am creating, two ways to stay informed would be to subscribe to the A Birding Naturalist channel and/or become a follower of this blog.

This video is from a recent visit my family and I made to Staten Island in the central Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Staten Island is a 9,200 acre reserve owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy specifically to provide foraging and roosting habitat for Sandhill Cranes (Antigone canadensis) and also waterfowl, shorebirds, and many other species.

With the opening of 2021, I am excited to share the news that I am starting a new project. In addition to continuing this blog, I am launching an “A Birding Naturalist” YouTube channel!

This blog has been a really rewarding experience to write over the last eight years, and I want to continue to grow this blog and the spread and sharing of knowledge that is its core. One way that I have decided to do that is to branch out to a new platform and medium. My hope is that the YouTube channel and video format will add to the ABridingNaturalist community and provide an additional way to learn about birds, birding, and the natural world in general.

You can check out the channel here. So far, I have a small number of videos posted, but more will be coming!

I hope you enjoy the material I have, and will, post and that you subscribe to the channel and join me on this new adventure.

Special thanks to my amazing wife who is doing all the video editing and production, without whom, this project would never have gotten off the ground!
