While rushing to walk my dog before leaving for our Thanksgiving trek yesterday morning, I encountered a small group (2-3, unsure because of the distance, lack of binoculars, and nasty weather) of sandhill cranes in the harvested corn fields on Baileys Lane in West Newbury. They were calling and flying around beyond the giant “marshmallow” hay bales before the treeline in the fields on the east side of the road.
