Dear Tweeters,

This evening at 8:20, two Sandhill cranes appeared at my place, circling and calling. They settled to earth at 8:35 pm in a field nearby. This field is north of SR 20 and east of the westernmost north-south leg of Hamilton Cemetery Road. That is pretty close to SR 20 milepost 75. They were still out there as it was getting dark. Horses in the field gave them some looks of disapproval.

This is the same sedgy field that hosted single Great Egrets in 1991 and 1997.

Yours truly,
