- Welcome home Evie!This evening between 6:30and 7:30 I tried my best to count cranes around Escalante Wildlife Area. The very rough count I got was between 700 and 1000 but there may have been many more I couldn't see.Cranes were in the cornfields east of the pond and south of G50 rd.. There were many cranes very close to the road, just on the other side of the fences, and photographers were enjoying the close ups.These corn fields run roughly east west with the Gunnison River along the S and G50 Rd on the N. . Most of the birds were concentrated along the river but hard to see from the road.I travelled along the road on the other side of the river but found no more corn and only a few more cranes.These migrating cranes have found their way to the very same night roosts that the flock of wintering cranes utilize...primo habitat for these big wonderful birds.Some of the cranes were dancing close to the road and I got some nice photos.Photographers will probably find the evening light better than in the morning when the sun is already high in the sky when the cranes start to move around.Andrea RobinsongHotchkiss

- Sunday there must have been at least, over the whole day, 1,000 sandhills circling higher and higher to get over (or go around) the Mt. Sneffels range southwest of Ridgway. Guess they stacked up starting Friday with the snowy, cold weather that continued until Sunday am which broke magnificently azure…probably lots of thermals.On Nov 17, 2014, at 8:54 PM, 'Evelyn Horn' botnbird@...

We have 9 Sandhill cranes at the reservoir this evening.
Recently we've observed 2 cranes that seem to be (perhaps) locals. this evening they're both reddish. Nesters? Hope!
the total to date is 10,621 (not counting the pair)
- Thursday, March 24, 2017We have about 180 Sandhills at the Basi tonight.A FUN surprise!We have a total of 12,894Now if we could find a mere six more, we'd make 13,000 again!Evey Horn
