"Geese" Clouds!

I frequently tweet radar images of what I believe are geese and ducks. The area that I see ducks and geese on radar the most is from Big Lake, AR to the Missouri Bootheel. With new radar technology, I know it is not precipitation. Here's an example from a few days ago. The right image is correlation coefficient. "Non-precipitation" will show up in grey and blue, while precipitation shows up in red, yellows, and oranges:
Today, it was confirmed. Zach Worrell sent me these pics from Rives, Missouri! These are some of the most amazing pics I have ever seen. He took them with his quadcopter! This is what we have been seeing on radar!



The pics speak for themselves. This is awesome. Thanks Zach!

I'm leaving to drive to Gosnell soon. I hope to grab some images from the ground as well.
