Thursday, May 11, I walked across a parking lot at Univ. of Nebraska Kearney during the lunch hour. I thought I heard a Sandhill Crane. No, it can't be. Then I heard it again. I looked up and saw four Sandhill Cranes flying fairly low over the campus. I have heard that Rowe Sanctuary has records of Sandhill Crane sightings in every month of the year. Summertime sightings are usually crippled birds. So what in heck are they doing here now?
