SAND HILL CRANES – September 5

The sandhill cranes were near our apartment for several weeks. By the time I got to Alaska, only 40-80 cranes were regular visitors. But Doug said at the peak time, there were hundreds in the field right outside our windows. Even 50 of them sounded like hundreds. Melanie and I were able to walk very close to them to get pictures.
