I remember when we worked at Bosque del Apache NWR we'd go outside and watch and listen to the morning takeoff of the "white" geese against the almost always gorgeous sunrise. There were 30,000 of them, estimated by the biologist. Eventually, someone (higher-up) questioned his estimate. A plane went up and photographed them on the ground and volunteers counted them (with a hand counter and crossing each one off). And guess what - 30,000 was close. What is your estimate of how many you had in that video. Sadly, the video hiccuped, but we persevered and got "that" sound again, along with wonderful memories.
