Sandhill Cranes

For those of you who live near Manitou--next time you hear a warbling sound that seems to be coming from just off your left elbow--look as high in the sky as you can possibly see, and you may be rewarded with a flight of Sandhill Cranes.  I saw a formation of 23 yesterday.  They are in motion all around the lake and they are a pretty sight indeed.  They are nature's ventriloquists, so don't be fooled by the direction of the sound--look up!
