The Sandhill Cranes, the main stars of the show here, are coming in day by day and the latest count shows that we have a little over 3,000 with at least twice that many coming by the end of November. And while they are beautiful to watch, I really like the snow geese which the latest count shows at a population of over 5,000. And I can believe that. Some mornings I look across the highway into the flooded grain fields and it's almost a blanket of white.

Next week the Festival of Cranes will begin and I'm told there will be over 5,000 birders and photographers here for that. It should be interesting. I'll try to do better at posting some pix from that.
