Video of Pintails, Mallards, Widgeon and Shovelers at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge by Tara Tanaka (suggestion to lower your volume before playing video, the music is appropriately dramatic!).

Thank you for sharing this, it was wonderful. I wish she'd answered the question about where the music came from.

About 30 years ago my wife and I were close to a flock of snow geese when they decided to break, and the visual and audio cacophony were awesome. This video reminded me of that.

Hopefully I can visit this place sometime. I lived in Texas for my first few decades and like to tell people that I've been on "just about every square inch of New Mexico". For me, a physics nerd, highlights of this part of the state include the VLA and the open-2-days-a-year Trinity site.
