Haehnle Sanctuary Crane Count 09/11/2016

Monday, September 12, 2016 8:01 PM | Steve Jerant (Administrator)

The Sandhill Cranes have not begun to use Haehnle as an evening roosting spot but several large flocks of cranes were seen flying around. One flock of 17 flew in overhead of observation hill and there were several young birds calling.

We saw several Buckeye Butterflies and a total of 13 Monarchs flew past observation hill.
