Sandhill Crane Reunion

Taking a break from Hungary for a moment ...

I went to the Washtenaw Audubon Society meeting last evening for a terrific presentation of The Flora and Fauna of Florida by Don Chalfant.  Each WAS meeting begins with the question:  "What has everyone been seeing ...?"

This really nice story of Sandhill Crane Reunion came up during that discussion and I have linked the video documenting the journey. Sherry Smith and Lathe Claflin played a pivotal role in this reunion and both were present at the meeting last night and spoke about how this happened.  Lathe commented that this whole process took 1-1/2 hours to arrange via email and how amazing that was.  I agree.

The Washtenaw Audubon Society is a truly well-connected group of can-do birders who make things like this happen.

I highly recommend watching this 6 minute video.  It does the heart good.  Have your volume turned up.
