turkeys and cranes
- This morning I received a call from an excited Al Haack who lives near
Paonia. He was reporting that he heard cranes close-by yesterday evening.
Shortly after the call I walked outside and almost immediately heard
crane calls overhead. Start counting, Evie!
For those of you who want to visit Wild Turkeys close-up, the big burly
toms have rejoined the non-breeders who have loafed around here all
summer. The toms are in strutting mode and anyone is welcome to come by
and watch the show.
I think I'm down to one hummer...too androgynous for me to ID. There was
a male black-chinned for the last few days but I haven't seen him today.
Enjoy this gorgeous Fall!
