A flock of sandhill cranes flew over our house on Jan 1, 2012, about a month later than usual. In the past we have seen dozens of flocks in early December.
Did they know that the first month of this winter would be warm?
Where are the thousands that usually fly over our area?
For the last three weeks, flocks of sandhill cranes have been passing over our neighborhood on their annual passage to the North.
I feel fortunate to work from home, so I can run outside and enjoy the sight and sounds of these beautiful birds as they pass over.
