Default Sandhill Cranes are arriving

The Sandhills have been arriving over that last couple of weeks. This was the first chance I've had to get some pictures. They tend to fly right over this viewing stand when going from the rice fields to the refuge land to rest.

Thank you everyone, I saw two more flights of about 30-40 cranes each fly over my house this evening. I love the sound they make.

Cheers
