For anyone who didn't get where the goodies were seen the crane and ibis were 
in 
the first impoundment on the right in the NW corner on the north side of Oil 
City Rd.  The crane was very vocal at first, probably stressed from the 
recording some people were playing and then flew up and NW over to the field in 
the back and on the left with the sod and squash growing in it.  It also came 
onto the road for awhile.  The ibis was elusive but flew up with everything 
else 
when some moron flew about 20ft above the road in a Cessna and scared 
everything.  The wren was along the NW part of the Liberty Loop Trail about 50 
feet or so from the trail out in the cattails.  He was easy to see even without 
binos and was singing well.  To get there walk along the trail til you get to 
a short telephone poll covered completely in vines that is on the north side 
of OCR and look out into the southern marsh from there.  He moved around a bit 
but usually came back to the area.  He became less vocal as the the morning got 
hotter.  Thanks again to John Haas for helping me once again.
