Sandhill Cranes Are Here
I think we heard, and saw, sandhill cranes migrating late this afternoon, far up in the sky. I googled the call and it sure sounds like what we heard. The birds above were larger than most and the wings looked like the crane's, too. It's nearly peak migration time here in Nebraska, and these birds were heading west toward central NE and the Platte River. Pretty cool. Maybe I'm just outside more now with a garden, but it sure does seem like the wildlife are more present or noticable on the edge of town. Not a revelation I know, but I'm liking this, and want to go further out. And stay there.
