Whooping Cranes are back

April 06, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Short trip to Horicon Marsh today to see if any goslings are hatched out.  A little early.  Still cold there although the water level is high and unfrozen.  A strong and constant west wind was keeping all the birds on the water and probably hiding in the cattails.  I did happen upon two whooping cranes in a cornfield, though.  They were pretty forgiving of me parking next to their spot; gave me a few moments of shooting time before taking off and heading back toward the marsh.

Great to see them.  All last year I wandered around all sides of the marsh and never caught a glimpse of them.  Hopefully this year there will be more opportunities.
