This video clip was taken by Squam Lakes Natural Science Center Executive Director Iain MacLeod on October 11, 2011. It shows migrating songbirds passing in front of the moon at night. Millions of songbirds migrate over New Hampshire every year on their way from the boreal northern hardwood forests to southern states. When the moon is full, you can count and even identify songbirds by their flight pattern and shape. In one hour on October 11, Iain counted 194 songbirds and could identify sparrows, thrushes, catbirds, woodcock, nuthatch and flicker. The video was taken on a Nikon Coolpix camera through a spotting scope. The sequence is 35 seconds long and at least three birds can be seen passing from left to right (heading south) during the last half of the video.
