I’ve been hearing the sandhill cranes, and had one distant sighting, but so far just listened to them. Early this morning I got lucky, and saw a pair in flight! I wasn’t really set up for bird photos, but I did get one shot that was “less-blurry.”
Just to note, today seems to have been an early-morning day for more than just me; I noticed an intrepid fisherman out in the dawn —mist— in a rowboat over the rockbar. (Perch for breakfast? I wondered….)
UPDATE: The Fisherman snagged a yellow perch and a walleye, both smaller than the limit….
