Haehnle Sanctuary Crane Count 10/24/2016

Monday, October 24, 2016 11:02 PM | Steve Jerant (Administrator)

Visitors outnumbered cranes again this evening with only 4 counted as landing in Mud Lake Marsh.  However, we are seeing lots more local activity with 1282 “FlyBy” cranes observed  from the overlook.  Egrets are still coming in and five raptors were seen.
