WE WENT TO OTHELLO, Washington area to view migrating Sandhill Cranes over the weekend. Small cameras have limitations and overall the new camera as a point-and-shoot does pretty well, but in this situation the zoom was not good enough. But, just imagine this as one slice of a fifty (?) acre + field. In this field there were thousand upon thousands of cranes and Canada Geese. We were as close as we could get to them without spooking them and had to stay in the car. It was a truly amazing mix of sound and sight, birds as far as we could see – in flight as well. Really memorable.
These cranes were in another field about five miles down the road; probably four or five hundred.
