Heading North

On a morning walk, my attention was drawn to the bugling sound that I’ve come to associate with the Sandhill Crane.  Looking up, I saw strings  of them coming across the sky above the farm fields, headed northward.  Spring migration has begun.

  1. Most, fi not all, of our Sandhill Cranes have headed north. I saw a few stragglers hanging around last week, but I have not seen any cranes since Saturday. A lot of cranes stay all winter down here so we have them from the end of October through the middle of February.
