I observed twice this week a pair of Sandhill Cranes flying to and from the Omemee pond (enlargement in Pigeon River on south edge of Omemee). One time they were also calling from the pond.

Location: Woodland Camp Site – Upper Buckhorn Lake

Time: 10:15 AM

A pair of Sandhill Cranes were grazing in front of my camper this AM. I scrambled to grab my camera…but the sun was not in the right spot for a great shot. This is the first I’ve seen of sandhills…… quite a thrill! The chick was gawky and adorable. Apparently they regularly wind their way through camp once the campers clear out on Sundays. Hope to see them again.
