Sandhill Cranes! Welcome back!



On my way home from a Great Gray Owl visit at Meek Road, I was driving down HWY 113 just north of Waunakee and spotted a Sandhill Crane preening in nice evening light:

Kim, one of my colleagues at Eagle Optics, is presently attending the Rivers and Wildlife Conference at Rowe Sanctuary in Nebraska. I attended last year and what an amazing spectacle of nature to see several hundred thousand Sandhill Cranes taking off in the morning light! I highly recommend this experience to anyone!
