Yes, I saw cranes!
Jasper Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area, Indiana
I took almost 1000 pictures when I was visiting the Sandhill fall migration stopover at Jasper Pulaski last fall. I still remember vividly the moment I saw these heavenly creatures for the first time. It was the moment I fell in love with the bird. Before that I only saw them in movies and documentaries. To bear witness to these mystic birds in person, flying by the thousands and calling out in unison, was something to savor forever. Cranes ARE my favorite bird!
