Haehnle Sanctuary Crane Count 11/06/2017

Tuesday, November 07, 2017 6:39 AM | Steve Jerant (Administrator)

About 150 cranes were seen flying to the north of Mud Lake Marsh but none landed in the Sanctuary this evening.  High water levels are likely the cause of low numbers of cranes roosting in the marsh.  We did have a good sunset and several bald eagle sightings.  A great blue hereon and a greater yellowlegs tells us the season is not yet over.
