More of a record shot than anything, but an amazing experience. An unusually warm early spring Saturday got me out in the yard to clean up the plants and garden from the winter crud. I had headphones on listening to a book and I could hear the marching bands a couple blocks away from the town's St. Patrick's Day parade. Nevertheless, I heard the unmistakable trill of Sandhill Cranes. Sure enough I looked up to see a flock flying over.
I got the camera out, and through the morning groups kept flying over. Certainly, hundreds of birds and probably thousands. Likely, they were leaving Jasper-Pulaski environs in Indiana, maybe 80 miles away as the crane flies, and heading up to Horicon Marsh or thereabouts in Wisconsin. It was a great sight to watch and listen to in the backyard. Just a few stragglers overhead and overheard today.
I kept trying to get a shot with the birds and one of the green helium-filled balloons that would get away from the parade, but had no luck. However, since the O'Hare flyway is also nearby, I did manage to catch those paths crossing: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=213948
