Sandhill Cranes and friends

I was out working at the birdfeeder this morning when I heard a familiar sound, one I haven’t heard since last fall on a visit to Crex Meadows. It was the sound of Sandhill Cranes. I looked up and there were a pair of Sandhill Cranes circling above. This is the earliest I have seen cranes in the area. It seems a bit early considering we still have a foot of snow on the ground. Normally I don’t see them around until the end of March or the first week of April. This is a shot taken a couple of years ago at the Gilbert Creek Wildlife Area near my house.

  1. I am watching two beauties in the corn field behind my house near Stoughton WI right now. Let’s hope this means we’ll be feeling spring soon!

    What beauties they are!
