Canadian Geese

We live on a direct fly-way used in the Spring and Fall.  In addition, there is a multi-acre pond that marks the West side of our property.  Literally hundreds of geese stop in both transits to spend many days and nights.  They ascend into flight and return many times during daylight to forage nearby corn fields for food. 
The groups in the video below are circling as they prepare to land on the pond.  Perhaps the noise they make is claiming rights as to where and when they glide onto the water and gracefully float to a stop.  In the many years we have watched them, we have never seen a collision of any sort -- amazing and spectacular!
