    Wish I had seen the Sandhill cranes. They are truly beautiful. Thanks for the memory.

      They were so high up, I could only see wings, a long tail and a long neck. But I could hear them. It was a compelling experience. I remember when I was there, how all sorts of people went out looking for the cranes so they could count them.

    They sometimes appear here, in the savannah areas along the Mississippi, but a year ago when I was in New Mexico they arrived early for winter and I was able to see them at the nature preserve near Socorro. They have a curious call that reminds me of a washboard being scraped by fingers, as in a jug band.
