sandhill cranes

It's been six years since we visited Bisbee, Arizona. Too long. Not only is it a uniquely artsy community, it's very close to Whitewater Draw, a winter refuge for the sandhill cranes. We have a friend in the area who says at least half of them had started the long migration north by the time we arrived to see the spectacle. Imagine every square inch of ground in this picture covered with these cool birds. If only you could hear their cooing by looking at the photo. They share their home with many other birds. The white ones here are Snow Geese.

Please feel free to leave a comment or just say hi. I'd love to know that you're out there and I'm not talking (writing) to myself.

  1. Just found your blog via your book list. We visited Bisbee about 15 years ago. I'll be stopping back from time to time.
