Yesterday Brian A. reported seeing a Whooping Crane with a group of
Sandhills near Prairie View County Park south of Portage.
This afternoon, about 2:00, I drove to the area and found the same flock
flying over a field located at the NW corner of Portage Road and E V
Avenue. The sun was shining on the low-flying flock and the whooper was
unmistakable. What a sight!
Later the flock landed in a field on the south side of W Drive, about 1/2
mile east of the W Drive intersection with Portage Road.
This month we are routinely seeing hundreds -- if not thousands -- of
sandhills in the fields around Olivet and Bellevue.
