This past week the early spring birds started returning to our area.

 Sandhill Cranes are migrating through the area. Large numbers of them can be found along the Red Cedar Trail. The spring Midwest Crane Count will be taking place on April 12th. They are looking for volunteers to count cranes.

I’ve had a few song sparrows around my feeder although they seem to be migrating through.Song-Sparrow-13-5-_0213

I think some of the birds will be surprised by the blizzard that is on its way.
