Re: Not quite our area, but perhaps some of our cranes?

I've been known to exaggerate, but this was pretty bad even for me. Cranes have been here for 10 million years, not 60 million!

Great Blue Heron at Miller's Landing!

There is a GREAT BLUE HERON at the edge of the water off Miller's Landing. I saw it first at 1:00 and it's still there an hour later. Was making short flights up and down a ways, for better fishing perhaps. The light is not too great for seeing in that direction but the tide is coming in which means...

SANDHILL CRANES are till here!

(Tuesday, 8:45 pm) I had a whole post written about the cranes leaving but had to delete it because they are still here! The pressure and winds have been favorable for departure today, and when we had some trouble finding the large group, many of us including the Crane Watch folks were wondering if ...

71 Sandhill Cranes

There were 71 (and maybe a few more) SANDHILL CRANES on the beach below my house this evening at sunset. East of Miller's Landing.

I sure hope they stick around for a few more days!
