Whooping Cranes are back
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.
