Saw and Heard Something COOL today!

  1. While out working on a story, I heard the faint calls of some Sandhill Cranes... I can't describe it, but it was a HUGE flock of them flying overhead. Had to be over 100 birds in the flock, and they were UP THERE. I tried to get some video of them, not sure if I did. I'll look here in a minute. There were two "V" formations, one was huge, the other a little smaller.

    Cool birds too. I really like their calls.
  2. ....Big Daddy....I wish I could have been there with you.....That is one call that gets your to hear them....what direction were they going......My guess they were heading home.....Spring is comming...

    We are seeing all sorts of ducks in Columbus Redheads, Scaup, bufflehead, name one and you can probably see it right now ....

    last weekend I was driving by an open pond and I had to do a double take ... at first i thought it was the usual geese but there were Canvas Backs in there ... pretty cool
