Odd title, right?!
I was finally successful in finding the (this year) elusive Snow Geese in Skagit County Washington.
There's just no sound like it when they decide to take to the air in great numbers!
I also learned that being downwind of this many geese in fields that may have been fertilized by farmers for this years crops, makes for quite the unpleasant assault on the olfactory senses....
Memories that will last a long time in both senses.....
As a bonus I got a few Trumpeter Swans, an Oystercatcher!

Thank you, they're quite prolific in this area during the winter months(usually)!

And the pilots, crew and passengers alike! Birdstrike wouldn't do that collision justice at all.... Thanks for the compliment!
