When a Peregrine Falcon is lurking in the area and your a small bird, there's reason to be alert and on edge. This flock of Wilson's Phalarope was preparing to land on the water, but for some reason they got very nervous and decided to relocate, but even after another landing attempt they decided to leave the area completely and seek safer waters.

This was filmed hand held with a Panasonic GH3 and a Panasonic 100-300mm lens using the "Frame Rate" option of 40% slow motion at 24p and with the lens image stabilization turned on. There is no audio recorded with any of the "Frame Rate" settings.

"Wild Birds" says it all. The beauty and awe of wild birds shown in their natural surroundings.
