Sandhill Cranes are Gathering For Their Migration

Today was a great day for the eight young Whooping Cranes  and everyone involved with training them for their journey.  After a pretty rough start to their migration to Florida, all eight were able to fly to the second stop on the route.  They flew 14 miles today.  Hopefully this is the beginning of a great trip for them.  You can follow their adventure from the website.

I think the sandhill cranes got the migration memo because today the sky was very busy and loud.  They were gathering out on our marsh as the sun was setting.  I estimate at least three groups of at least 50 in each group are spending the night.   I won't write much tonight but just share some of the awesome photos I took tonight of them circling and landing to rest.
