Saw the Sandhill Cranes in Bristol again this morning. I keep expecting
each sighting to be the last for this year, but a quick check of eBird shows
that in New York in the last 5 years, Sandhills were reported in every month
of the year (though only one bird was reported in February, and none in
January after the week of 1/8). So maybe I'm making some wrong assumptions
on when they "should" migrate. Still, I can't imagine them sticking around
after it snows.
