FYI I picked out two Sandhill Cranes at Bristol Pond yesterday afternoon. They were standing in the marsh to the south of the channel leading to the main part of the pond (look for two upright snags next to each other then scan left). These two cranes lifted off while I was watching them, flew south, then wheeled around and headed north, presumably to Norm Salter's house. Moments later I spotted four more cranes flying north over the marsh. Possibly the first two birds had circled around behind me and then joined two more cranes, but I don't think so. Alternatively, there may be as many as six cranes in the vicinity.
