Hello Tweeters-

Please excuse me if I don't quite post this right; it's my first posting.

Driving down the I5 corridor toward Ridgefield Wildlife Reserve from my
home in Longview, which I do quite often, I noticed the very threatening
dark clouds to the west and decided to take a quick look in Woodland to see
if the Sandhill Cranes have begun to hang out there.
I found the first flock/gaggle/whatever groups of cranes are called, on
Caples Exit Road, about one mile east of River Dike Rd. My heart was
actually pounding as this was my first good look at Sandhills! I grabbed my
camera and took approx 1,000 shots. They began to peel off to the North so
i began to explore some of the roads and I relocated the group about one
block south of Guild Drive on Pekin Rd.
As a newbie birdwatcher, I am quite enthusiastic and have photographed a
lot of Eagles, Harriers, Red-tail, Rough-legged, Cooper and Kestrel hawks
but somehow these Sandhill Cranes are birds that I could hardly contain
myself to look for. Finally, today was the day!

Happy birding to all,


p.s. I have an album on Flickr - it's Sandhill Cranes with todays date. I
don't know how to post that album but will figure it out very very soon...
