In the 2 minutes if was outside yesterday evening @6:00 pm, a small (30 birds) flock of Sandhill Cranes flew over my Lake Claire neighborhood. I was astonished to see that they were only a couple hundred feet above the ground, and calling like mad. I wonder if anyone in Druid Hills with a view of the golf course noticed if they landed? Sure looked like they were about to touch down close by. These birds, contrary to the usual direction, were also flying from SE to NW. Thrilling to see them so close!
