Hi All,
First report of season with 369 Sandhill Cranes. Snowy Egret was found 
by Lathe Calfin in a group of Great Egrets (over 130 Great Egrets are 
coming to sancutary). Snowy was last seen in area of water by small 
island straight out from observation hill, just right of tower that you 
can see in distance.

Other notble birds:
Blue-wing Teal,Green-wing Teal, Black Ducks, Greater Yellowlegs,Sharp-
shinned Hawk, and male Nothern Harrier.

For those you do not know where Phyllis Haehnle Merorial Sanctuary is 
located.
 It is 6 miles northeast of Jackson. From I-94;Race Rd.(Exit 147) go 
north 2 miles to Seymour Rd.; then, west 1.5 miles to entrance on right.
