I have been fortunate enough to see 2 Goose migrations into our area here in WI over the years.
Friday morning I witnessed thousands of Sandhill Cranes POURING out of the sky on their apparent migration south.
The first time I have seen that.
I watched the Cranes riding the nor'wester down out of the Dakota's and the Canadian plains.
They poured out of the sky, one wave after another, for hours.
(no ducks, but I stayed and watched the spectacle)
Dozens or more in flight after flight.
The silence of the marsh shattered by their peculiar chattering calls.
30 mph NW winds, snow and cold.
One of the most amazing things I have ever witnessed!!!
Elvis' eyes were locked to the sky.
I tried to take pics, it just didn't work.
But it's in my heart forever.................WOW!!!
What a morning!!!
(no, I didn't fire a shot, one of the best days of the year in the marsh)
Have any of you ever seen this??
stan b & Elvis
PS...24 degrees, we are on our way to the marsh NOW!!!!
