[Tweeters] Follow-up on Common Crane on Sunset Road

I thought I should add an addendum to my earlier posting. It appears that the Common Crane has moved on.
As darkness came on we had some light from the full moon. We watched the crane and geese continue to forage in the field until a little before 9:00 p.m. As we prepared to leave by driving to the end of Sunset Road and turning around there drove back toward Chuckernut Dr. we saw the crane and the geese fly across the road and then turn to the north. We tried to follow them for a bit but quickly lost them in the darkness. We drove north along Chuckernut to Bow Hill Road but did not see them and decided to head for home.
I managed a passable photo and attached it to my eBird checklist.

We drove up this evening and found the crane in twilight at 8:34 p.m. It was about halfway between Chuckernut Drive and Worline Road close to where it has been all day.
Thanks to all the folks that posted to help us find this great bird.
