Gary Kohlenberg led today’s successful CBC trip up the lake, and I am sure he will want to do a full report at some point. But for those who might be thinking about going up tomorrow, one of the highlights was a single SANDHILL CRANE. We looked high & low around the Carncross Rd area without luck. On the way home, we drove down East Road. As expected, Knox-Marsellus and Puddler’s Marsh were frozen solid (water quite high). But there was a single crane foraging in the field to the east of the road, just north of the gray house that was sold recently. As we approached it, the bird took off, circled the area, and then flew east. Best of luck to anyone deciding to chase it tomorrow.
