Subject: Sandhills over Fort MacPherson
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ascii
Forgot to sign in yesterday to add my Sandhill Cranes. About 1:45-2:00 pm Wed, over Fort MacPherson Golf course, 3 large flotillas came overhead--50-75 in each. Each paused in about the same place above us to circle a few times and regroup into a Vee, calling all the while. There seemed to be a dispute in the last set, and they went off in two vees.
I have just returned from a golf outing in Orlando FL and saw lots of Sandhills, and there one gets to see them very close up--5 feet is common--but the great sight of the flocks overhead is still grand!
