The Magic of Migration

Throughout the day today, we watched four large flocks of Sandhill Cranes preparing to head south for the winter. What an incredible joy it is to witness this migratory dance, as they call and fly large circular patterns in the sky, gather themselves into a loose V formation and begin their long journey to warmer climates. Even when it got so dark that we couldn't see them, we could still hear them. The beautiful, haunting call of thousands of cranes will remain with me for days to come...
