Subject: [cobirds] Cranes in Monte Vista NWR
The cranes are returning to the San Luis valley and there were a few
hundred at the Monte Refuge yesterday. Right now, they are feeding in the
grain fields to the south of the 8S Turnout. If you watch from that
location, you will get some good in flight looks. There are a few on the
Hwy 15 turnouts too, a ways out.

Be aware that many of the Monte Vista refuge wetlands are bone dry. So the
drive loop is mostly uneventful. However, do check out Home Lake, which has
been a hotspot all fall.

Be sure to look in the trees and shrubs at the 8S turnout. Yesterday there
were 4 species of Warblers plus a thrush sp, and many kinds of sparrows.
