The Call of The Wild is Here! The Cranes are Flying!

An unseasonable warm day as I was out doing my horse chores I could hear “the call of the wild” a deep, rolling trumpet and rattling that can be heard for several miles, could it be? YES! The Sandhill cranes are migrating! There were approximately 70 cranes in the first flock around 11:00 AM and about 100 cranes in the second flock about noon flying much higher and definitely not as organized. Maybe not migration just yet but the local group moving in search of food…wonderful to hear them and see them again!
