We enjoyed a beautiful autumn evening at the Sanctuary today. The colors are coming into peak, which unfortunately is more than I can say about the crane counts. Recent rain is likely causing the low numbers. Great Egrets continue to come into the sanctuary as do many ducks and thousands of blackbirds.
