Sunday I got to witness a flock of about 50 Sandhill Cranes fly over Crane Lake. I was first alerted to their presence by their unique calling. They have a rolling call that is very distinctive. I knew the minute I heard that call that there were Cranes in the area. When I first saw the flock, they were really quite low, but were circling around getting lift from a thermal. Pretty soon they were high up in the sky heading south. What a thrill for me, I had been waiting to see Cranes at Crane Lake for some time.
