* Very strong south winds aloft, plus good soaring conditions (thermal updrafts), forecast for both 2/26 and 2-27.
* On 2-24 the winds were from the north or northwest all day, so the thousands of Sandhill Cranes I saw coming into Quivira NWR in the evening from the north (presumably from feeding areas) may not have travelled far on that day I wonder when they actually arrived in the area. Winds had a southerly component (as well as an easterly component) on 2-25 so they may have gone on their way then. More will surely be on the move today 2/26 and tomorrow 2-27.
