The fall 2016 Sandhill Crane counting season opened officially this evening at the Haehnle Sanctuary. It is very early in the season for the cranes to be gathering but the nice weather brought out the crane counters. A total of 6 cranes were seen at the sanctuary this evening, four of those cranes flew out around 6:00 p.m.
